Page 26: Instructions and art for plywood top and bottom
Clarification: Because plywood is not a full 3/4" thick, when you glue up the six pieces each for the top and bottom panels, as the plans indicate, the panels will be about 4 1/4" wide -- not the 4 1/2" as the drawings show. To obtain 4 1/2" panels: (1) Start by trimming the outer ply off of each edge of the top and bottom panels. (2) Then glue another strip of plywood to each edge. Removing the outer ply lets you keep the same "dark/light" pattern in the plywood without creating a thick, "double" joint line. (3) Carefully trim each edge to create a panel that's 4 1/2" wide and keeps the handle centered in the top panel.
