Twin Kitchen Hutches #58

RATE THIS:

 

Now let’s mill the edges of the top shelves. I install a 3/8’’ roundover bit in the router table.

 

 

As usual, I proceed with test cuts. If you look closely on the photo you will see that I must readjust the height of the router bit to get rid of this disgracious line on the top.

 

 

I make visual tests to establish the width and the length of the upper shelves. According to this photo, the top shelf would be too proud from the moldings. This is a matter of taste. Then, I proceed to make the cut.

 

 

Here’s a result that pleases me.

 

 

Another sanding session, from 100-grit paper to 500-grit. And yes, I’m wearing my dust mask!

 

 

To sand the egges, I install the shelves in the bench vise. Doing so, I can sand the three required sides.
