Next shape the cove molding for the top

1T0 form the thick top cove molding, cut three pieces of 3/4"-thick stock to

3Vi" wide by 8' long. (This will give you enough stock for pails H and I.)

2 Glue and clamp the three pieces of stock face-to-face with the edges and ends flush.

3 Scrape excess glue from one edge, and then joint it flat. Rip the opposite edge on your tablesaw for a 3" finished width.

4 Resaw or plane the lamination to 113/16" thick. (See Drawing 5.)

5 Clamp a piece of straight stock to the lop of your 10" tablesaw, where shown on Drawing 6. Raise the blade '/s" above the saw table surface, and pass the workpiece over the blade. Continue to raise the blade and take light cuts (no more than !/s" per pass) until you achieve the full I/2" depth of the cove. (We found that an 80-tooth, carbide-tipped blade produced the smoothest cuts.)

6 Next, follow the four-cut sequence on Drawing 7 to trim the edges of the molding to shape.

7 Now, miter-cut the front cove molding piece (H) and the two side pieces (I) to fit the front and sides of the cabinet.

8 Drill mounting holes through the cabinet for attaching the cove molding pieces (H, I). Glue and screw the pieces in place, flush with the top of the cabinet. (See Drawing 4b.)
