In the previous installment of this project, we completed the cabinet body.Now we will construct the top using edge joined solid wood, and the adjustable shelf using edge banded plywood.For details on the shelf, see Diagram D.
CUT PLYWOOD AS SPECIFIED IN CUT LIST.Be sure you get a good clean cut on each edge.EDGE BAND.Using 1-1/2″ x 3/4″ hardwood, glue a str*p on each exposed edge of plywood.No biscuits or brads are necessary; just glue and clamp the edging in place taking your time to position the strips flush with the top of the plywood.
NOTCH CORNERS.Using a band saw or hand saw, cut a 1-1/4 x 1-1/4″ notch from each corner of the shelf.This will allow it to wrap around the leg.SAND OR USE A CABINET SCRAPER TO FLUSH THE SURFACES.In this picture I have drawn a squiggly line covering the glue joint, and when the line is gone the joint is perfectly flush.
DADO THE BOTTOM OF THE SHELF.Mill rabbets in the edge banding so that the bottom of the edge banding is flush with the bottom of the shelf, leaving only a 1/2″ thick portion of the edge banding remaining in its full 1-1/2″ height.
