We left off on my last post with me thinking about how I would make the back of the upper box. The piece of oak plywood I had was long and narrow – not wide enough to span the width of the box, but there was certainly enough wood to do it in pieces.
I once built a coffee table in which the top was made using frame and panel construction and it went together pretty easily, so I decided to replicate that process for the back of the box. Here is how it went.
With the back installed, The upper box is complete except for some final sanding. I will make the two adjustable shelves for it later. Up next: I will join the upper and lower box and begin work on the face frame which will be made from quarter sawn red oak. When the face frame is completed you will be able to get a much better understanding of what the built-in will look like.
We have a busy weekend coming up moving my daughter back to college, so I won’t have much time for woodworking this week.
