Now let’s mill the edges of the top shelves. I install a 3/8’’ roundover bit in the router table.
As usual, I proceed with test cuts. If you look closely on the photo you will see that I must readjust the height of the router bit to get rid of this disgracious line on the top.
I make visual tests to establish the width and the length of the upper shelves. According to this photo, the top shelf would be too proud from the moldings. This is a matter of taste. Then, I proceed to make the cut.
Here’s a result that pleases me.
Another sanding session, from 100-grit paper to 500-grit. And yes, I’m wearing my dust mask!
To sand the egges, I install the shelves in the bench vise. Doing so, I can sand the three required sides.
