the sides with spray adhesive. These patterns are available online at popularwoodworking. com/apr09, along with a SketchUp model of the plans.

1 held the two sides together with double-stick tape, cut the profilesat the band saw, and cleaned up the cuts with a rasp followed by a scraper. Working on both sides at the same

time ensured a good match, and cut the time for making the sides in half.

The top and bottom ofthe case fit in stopped dados. 1 made a jig to guide my router for cutting the dados by camping two pieces of scrap to each side of the top. I then screwed a third piece at a right angle to the other two to register the router on the front ofthe case side.

Usinga 5/8"-diameter mortising bit with a bearing mounted above the cutter, I made a test cut in some scrap, then clamped the jig to the side and routed a1 A"-deep dado, stopping V2" short ol the width ofthe finished top and bottom. The top overhangs the door, and the bottom sits behind the door, so I laid out the exact dimensions before cutting the dados.

1 squared off the ends ofthe dados with a chisel, and cut a notch in the front edge ofthe two horizontal pieces. The only other joinery on the case is a V^-wide by V:"-deep rabbet for the back panels. 1 used a rabbeting bit in a hand-held router, cutting the rabbet along the entire length ofthe top and bottom. The rabbets in the sides stop where the rabbets meet the dados.

Be fore asse mbl i ng t he case. 1 d r i 1 led 3/i6"-diameter holes for the two adjustable shelves. 1 brushed the end grain of the top and bottom with yellow glue, and also coated the end grain inside the dados. After waiting 10 minutes, I brushed a second coat of glue inside the dados, and clamped the case together. Sizing the end grain like this makes for a stronger glue joint.
