« Part 3: Face frame, and a little assembly Part 4 of Pine Pantry Cupboard series Part 5: Shelves getting installed »

Just a quick catch-up…
Got the blank for the top out of the clamps. Laid it up on top of the case. Marked how much to trim off. Set up the jig on the bandsaw, and cut for width. Framing square to mark the ends square, bandsaw to trim. Cleared a BIG spot on the bench,,

And used the Jumbo Jack to flatten both faces. Block plane for the end grain, and make a slight bevel to the edges. Took a quarter out of my pocket, and laid out a curve on the front two corners..

Then used the beltsander to sand to the line. Used a drill to cut a few slotted holes in the webframe. Drill the hole, then rock the drill back and forth to make the slot. Slot goes in the direction the wood will move. Set the top on the frame, used a combo square to get the top centered, and added a few screws..

One screw is centered at each end, and two are in the front and back. It will hold the top centered, and still allow the wood to move.

Plywood for the shelves..

need to start cutting these to size….next time.
As for those screws I was going to get, before I stopped at a garage sale..

The one on the left I already had, the other two are the new ones.
Will need to cut the shelves for size, and make a bunch of cleats to hang them on. Next time.

Stay tuned..
