So I got the top finished and mounted it to the case using Z clips.

Here is a pic, but I’m going to create a project with all the pics.

I learned something new at the end. I was getting ready to build and install some rails to mount the top to when I ran across a post where the guy used his biscuit joiner to cut slots for the Z clips.

I realize that I should have just zipped a slot with the table saw during the initial parts shaping. But since i didn’t do that I used my biscuit jointer to cut some slots. I touched the slots up with a little stain and installed the top. A very handy little trick to know.

Aha—the blog post I missed! (I hit the Projects page first, then blogs, then videos, when I visit LJs.)

As I mentioned before, this magazine rack turned out beautifully—thanks for posting!

Awesome. Your magazines should be very grateful for their new home!
