Cabinet shown without doors and lower molding

Completion of frame mounted in position for final fit

Three frames attached, lower frame, middle frame (to mount mating worm gear), upper frame for completing top of cabinet. Two additional frames not yet build are for mounting rail base, and last frame for securing laminated tops.
Note block for mounting the ladder caster and toggle clamp.
Worm gear will be used for raising and lowering front sides of the cathedral model. This will be done with stepper motors. This gear set shown is 60:1 ratio and will drive two 13” long rack gears, there will be 8 motors when completed across 12 tables.
A 1 1/4” hole was drilled, this will allow the disassembly of the shaft when needed. I used these series of holes to locate the shaft. Using bronze bushing to center the shaft, with shaft in place I located the poly pillow blocks and secured in position.
This is a layout of the remaining frame to accommodate the raising and lowering of table top.
Slots for door frame made with 1” cutter, Jig used to position work.
