Adding the Trim

The table structure is now complete. The remaining steps are to cover the table trim pieces (H and I) with decorative molding, attach support pieces for the brass, and attach the brass trim.

  1. From the 3-1/2-inch-wide decorative molding, cut two long molding pieces (J), each 51 inches long, and two short molding pieces (K), each 12-1/2 inches long.
  2. With each piece standing on edge, carefully miter the ends of each of the long and short molding pieces (J and K) at a 45-degree angle. Attach the molding pieces (J and K) to fit perfectly over the table trim pieces (H and I). Use glue and 3-penny finishing nails, placing one nail every 6 inches. Countersink the nails.
  3. From 1x2 pine, cut two long brass support pieces (L), each 51 inches long, and two short brass support pieces (M), each 12-1/2 inches long.
  4. Stand each of the brass support pieces (L and M) on edge and miter both ends at a 45-degree angle. Attach the mitered lengths just under the molding pieces (J and K). Use glue and finishing nails, spacing the nails about 6 inches apart. Countersink the nails.
