Right up there with the select pine. So I picked through the cheaper boards to find the best. After carefully matching the boards for best edges (for glueup) and for grain match, I glued the panels for the top, the shelves and for the two sides. The shelves and two sides are sized to finish at 11"-wide, which is two 1×6s glued together. The top was two 1×8s that were then ripped to finish width. PUTTING IT TOGETHER Construction was pretty straightforward. After cutting the finished panels to length I used pocket screws to attach the three shelves between the two sides.

The rounded face works great for corbels, and the flat side smooths out the transition from round-to-flat on the piece. The next step is to assemble the base frames. To do this, I used countersunk and plugged screws through the edges of the legs and into the ends of the stretchers. Because the legs are 11∕2" wide, I needed to use 21∕2" screws to make a solid joint. I adjusted the length of my countersink bit to make sure I would properly pre-drill the hole.
