Finished Wooden Banks

Hello there, this is the final part to the
construction of my banks. We last left
off gluing the four sides together. I 
believe I discussed the sanding process
to make the corners smooth. Well that
isn't done until the top is glued on and
the bottom is screwed into place.

Pictured here is a top having the slot milled
into it. This I do before I glue it to the four
sides. If you look at the fence pictured here
you'll see the two stop blocks on either side
of the top. They determine how long the slot
will be. An 1/8 inch router bit is used.

Here are all the banks all put together and
ready for sanding. I do this on my belt
sander that is six inches wide.

OK, here are a couple of finished
banks. They have a few coats of
lacquer on them.
