I cut my 3/4” MDF top and bottom shelf to fit in the frames. I then cut the scrap offcuts from the frame and leg lumber into cleats (for holding the top and the bottom shelf in place.
Above: The MDF panels are cut to fit, then pressed down into the frames – leaving them flush with the top.
Below: Cutting the scraps into shelf & top cleats. Nothing real critical here for the size – just make them 4” shorter than the space they are being hooked into.
Below: The stack of cleats, ready to use.
Below: Installing the cleats with screws & glue
Below: All the parts are finsihed…final assembly is close at hand.
Well, we are almost finished….
I’m still waiting on my casters (I ordered them) so I will need to wait a little longer before I can use the table.
Watch for Part five…Final Assembly
