    The last 1/3rd of the trim is floating on the ends of the tops. Tops are held on with metal clips. I have a little table to make for a lady as a present to her dad, beyond that a bed for a grandson, and a kitchen maybe this winter for my son. Here is a pic of the one side unit. You can see I used the biscuit cutter to make slots for the clips.Click image for larger version.

    Hi Bryan ,
    Your piece turned out very nicely. The photo of the top especially shows the care you took in the building and staining, congratulations!

    looks great, can I ask what did you use to finish it.
    Poly over stain? If so, what kind of poly, how was it applied?
    Im making a box out of oak veneer ply and oak lumber and Id like to understand how to finish it.

    I used a Fuji Q3 HLVP turbine to apply 1 coat lacquer sanding sealer, then 2 coats of satin lacquer. I add a little bit of thinner to the ML Campbell Magnalac laquer.

    That turned out really well. I like the wide mitered frame for the top panels.
