1 Prepare the pieces for these assemblies to thickness and width. To make the corner bridle joints (see page 25), mark the ends of each piece using a marking gauge, try square and marking knife, and then cut them with a tenon saw. Test the joints for fit and modify them if necessary. (Note that the battens for the top and base assemblies do not reach the front of the cabinet but stop short; a facing strip is glued on to the front to hide the bridle joints. The battens for the middle assembly do run to the front, because the bridle joints will be hidden by the decorative strip which will be fixed over them.) Before the joints are glued, drill and countersink the screw holes in the side battens; these are used when the battens are fixed to the sides.

2 Glue and assemble the components for all three frames. Ensure that each one is square and exactly the correct size. If required, the size can be modified slightly after gluing with a jack plane.
