Cut and edge the shelves then finish your cabinet

ICut the walnut plywood shelves (R) and front and back strips (S) to size plus 1" in length.

2 Cut or rout %" rabbets W deep in each strip, where shown on Drawing 8. Next, rout 'A" coves along the front edge, where shown on Drawing 8a.

3 Glue the strips to the front and back of the shelf. Later, crosscut both ends to trim the shelves to finished length. Sand smooth. (We wrapped sandpaper around a 16" piece of dowel to sand the coves).

4 Finish the cabinet. (We applied one coat of Watco Dark Walnut oil finish, followed by five coats of Watco Natural oil finish.)

5Nail the shelf standards in the grooves, checking that the numbers on the standards are right-side up. Add brackets to support the shelves. 9
