« Part 13: Help Your Shelf Part 14 of Art Deco TV Table series Part 15: Hidden Handles (Pulls) »

The top and bottom are mirror images of each other and can be cut at the same time just like the shelves. You just need to mark each one (this side up) so they stay in alignment to make up for any imperfections in the shape. To begin I made a template so I could figure out the placement of the tenons used to line up the parts in the glue up. I set the bottom drawer on the template and clamped the front and side ribs to extend the line down the side. I used another rib to define the overhang. Pretty simple. The rest is fairly standard glue up to size and cut down with the plunge saw.

And this is where we want to end up!

Hey! How’d you do that? More next time…
