029 The Utah Night Shift - The Shelf

The last bit of real construction that I needed to do we finished today.  I needed a shelf under the layout for the DCC system and for storage.

 I have a lot of 2x2 stock left, so I made a frame from them.  The shelf is one foot below the bottom of the table top.

 Using several levels I screwed it into the legs.

 I cut a piece of plywood to  40 1/4" x 17 1/2", and the cut out a small square about 6" long for power cables.

Using carpenter's glue, I glued the table top to the frame to prevent having to have screw heads showing.  It came out very level and looks great.
