Now youre ready for a durable finish

Using a sanding block and 220-grit paper, give the completed project a quick once-over to smooth grain that raised when wiping off glue squeeze-out. After removing the dust with a tack cloth, we applied a coat of Minwax Provincial (no. 211) stain. Then we applied a coat of gloss polyurethane, followed by a coat of satin. Between coats, we sanded with 220-grit sandpaper.

Make two copies of this full-size pattern, and trim them to the 37/8" width. Then cut the patterns apart between the center break lines. Use spray adhesive to adhere the patterns to the side panels. Position the tops of the l-shape cutouts 4V2" from the panels' top edges, and the bottoms of the cutouts 41/2" from the panels' bottom edges, as indicated on the patterns.

3 With the finish dry, replace the desktop fasteners and top, and add shelf pins. Make a template for the shelves from i/V'-thick plywood. Take the template to a glass shop to ensure that your shelves will fit. Have the shelves' edges ground with a pencil edge.

Note: If you are installing the optional curio cabinet light, fasten it to the front rail, and lay the cord in the rear rail's notch before replacing the top. ♦
