Keep track of which way these marks go in the steps ahead. At this point, it’s a good idea to mark your pieces so you won’t cut a notch in the wrong place ( Photo 5). 6 Saw two notches in the top arms. Trap the arm between two angled stop blocks.

The subtop (E1) and the two fixed shelves (F1 and G1) have front edges that are thicker than 3⁄4" ( Fig. F). To achieve this look, glue “buildup” pieces (E2, F2, F3, F4 and G2) to each part.

Make sure everything is straight and square and remove any squeezed-out glue before it dries. (Note: You’ll be able to clamp the bottom shelf to the back panel, but not the top shelf.
