Assemble Stand

To assemble the stand. I began by fastening the top assembly to one of the C-shaped legs. To do this, lay the leg down and position the top assembly on it.

attach top. As the top is put into position, make sure the top surface is flush with the top edge of the leg, and that the front edges of the top and the legs are aligned. Then mark pilot holes through the shank holes in the cleats, drill the holes, and screw the top down tight, see Fig. 6.

attach base. Now the base shelf can be positioned on the bottom part of the same leg assembly. Align the front and bottom edge of the shelf with the edges of the foot, see Fig. 7. Then screw it in place.

attach second leg. After the top and base assemblies are screwed to one of the legs, flip this assembly over and fasten it to the other leg.

add casters. Now the casters can be mounted to the bottom of the base shelf. Center them so there's V' clearance when they rotate, see Detail in Fig. 7.

drawer guides. To complete the basic assembly, I cut two drawer guides (K) V\ wide by Vw thick and pre-drilled three countersunk shank holes for No. 8 x %" screws, see Fig. 6.

spacing gauge. The guides are screwed to the inside faces of the legs. To position the guide, I made a spacing gauge by ripping a piece of scrap l7/i<" wide. Use this gauge to position the guide, and mark pilot holes through the shank holes in the guides, see Fig. 6.
