Framing the lop

  1. The top (A) is simply a 20-inch-square section of laminated pine that is framed by 1 x 4 pine boards. Cut two short frame pieces (B) from 1x4 pine, each 20 inches long.
  2. Glue and screw the two short frame pieces (B) to opposite edges of the laminated square top (A), as shown in Figure 1. The edges of the short frame pieces (B) should be flush with the top surface of the laminated square top (A). Use 1-1/4-inch-long screws, and space them about four inches apart. Countersink the screws.
  3. Cut two long frame pieces (C) from 1 x 4 pine, each 21-1/2 inches long.
  4. Glue and screw the two long frame pieces (C) to the remaining two edges of the laminated square top (A), as shown in Figure 1. The long frame pieces (C) cover the exposed ends of the short frame pieces (B). Again use glue and 1-1/4-inch-long screws placed about every four inches. Countersink the screws.
