Adding the lop Trim

The top trim is a 1 x 4 pine frame that covers the exposed edges at the top of the chest.

  1. From 1x4 pine, cut two long top trim pieces (K), each 49-1/2 inches long, and two short top trim pieces (L), each 18-1/2 inches long.
  2. Setting each top trim piece (K and L) on its face, miter both ends at a 45-degree angle.
  3. Fit the mitered trim pieces (K and L) onto the top of the chest, carefully matching the miters. Glue and screw them in place using 1-1/4-inch-long screws. Screw through the top trim pieces (K and L) into the long and short horizontal trim pieces (I and J). Countersink the screws.
