Step 11: Cutting Top and Bottom Shelves

With the legs dry fit from the previous step, I measured out and cut the top and bottom shelves out of 3/4" ply. Similar to the case construction, these also had hardwood edge banding applied.

Next, I marked out the height which I will cut dominoes into the legs, which will be used to join the top and bottom shelves to the legs. The height of the dominoes were set to leave the edge of the legs about 1/4" higher than the top of the shelf. This allows me to cut a small bevel on the legs that eases the top edge of the legs down to the top shelf.
