« Part 9: glue up doors, top Part 10 of TV 3 piece wall entertainment unit series Part 11: drawers & mock up drawer unit, doors »

I made a jig to hold the stock and follow the curve for the arch. Used info from my door calculator program (Rockler) to calculate the radius for the arch.

I placed a back stop 5” from the jigs front edge, trace the curve onto the 7/8” x 5” stock and bandsaw close to the pencil line.

I have my cutter sets doubled stacked on the 3/4” spindle with a rub bearing on the bottom. The toggle clamps make good handles to steer the jig past the cutters.

I cope the ends using a Shop Fox hold down jig

I cut the back of the top on the table saw 1/8 per pass to square the area for the glass to sit in.

Test fit before glue up

I use a clamp to keep the joint flat during glue up
