Here is my design:
Cake with caramel frosting
Bars with powdered sugar topping
Cut the boards as shown
in this image.
Note….these are not to scale,
just a rough estimate.
I used my first cut board as a pattern
to make sure all the boards of each
length were the same length.
Here, I used a stop block to
measure and cut the 1x4 boards,
since there were quite a few.
|Work on a level surface.|
|Cut all the boards prior to assembly.|
|Make a box frame by screwing (1) 20" |
board on each end of (2) 17" boards,
with the 2 1/2" screws.
|Use the square to make sure |
all your corners are 90°.
|Screw (2) 17" boards each |
4 1/2” from the center of the frame,
so you have a 9” space in the center.
|Attach the 1x4's to the top |
of the frame;overlapping the
sides an equal distance all around.
|You may find the easiest way |
is to place all the boards and clamp
them in place; then screw them down.
|Use (1) 1 5/8" screw in each board, |
over each 2X6 (total of 4 per board).

Make sure your edge is flush along the bottom.

demonstration purposes only.
Make sure the edges are even!
