I’m making this Lectern (see other blog entries), and I’ve run up a little problem. The lectern has, of course, the top table, and I’m aware how to control expansion with that.
However, I have two other shelves, one just below the top, and one near the bottom. My issue is, how do I allow expansion (which means cutting the board short width-wise) and still have a finished look? I’m guessing I can somehow affix it at the front (the top of the photo) and do a couple of metal table clips adjacent to that fixation…but what about the gaps on the sides (left and right in photo)? I guess I could use some molding to hide it, but molding isn’t really part of the Mission-style, to the best of my knowledge.
-- Have a blessed day!
