1 Installing the cap rails
Cut the cap rails to length, mitering the ends at 60° and beveling the front edge at 70°. (Refer to the chart on page 71 to determine the length of the rail along its inside edge.) Drill two clearance holes through the rails at each end. Then prop up two support assemblies and mark a line along the top end of each leg that divides its thickness in half. Align the ends of the cap rail with the marked lines and fasten the piece to the legs (right). Now add on another cap rail and support assembly, continuing until all six of each are installed.
