« Part 1: Frame and panel work Part 2 of TV Stand series Part 3: Glue Up and the Top from heck »

The Book-match panels got one coat of seal-a-cell and then three coats of armor-seal.

Dominoes were cut to join the legs to the panels.

The parts were dry fit to mark the locations for the dominoes the front stretcher (that I am not certain is essential for the build, as I could affix the top in such a way that it becomes the structure for that part).

I need to glue up the side leg/panel assemblies, then drill for holes for the pins to hold the glass shelves before joining them with the back panel and front stretcher.

I think it is coming along nicely.

I have some snipe I did not remove in the panels. I can’t seem to prevent it when I get down to very thin boards. It is not noticeable, but I know it is there. I could have used a plan to remove it, but I was down to just the amount of wood I needed for the fit. Next time I need to go down that thin, I will leave 1/16 and finish by hand or leave 1/8 and then put a rebate on the edge. Live and learn.
