Only a brief update as bad light stopped play this eve but I’ve marked out the shelves for cutting and thought I’d share a quick tip.

The plan is to have four shelves at the top of the unit with the folding desktop attached to a slimmer shelve at the bottom.  This will allow the desk to be recessed when folded up but means that one of the shelves is an inch thinner meaning that it had to be taken into account while marking them.

To that end I did as before with the uprights and clamped them together on my table, I then simply flipped them over to have a flat plane to mark.

They are clamped hard enough to keep them in place while I measure and mark them and I’ll separate them for cutting.  Simple but effective.
