Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village, in this video clip I will show you how to attach our trim to our sides. I have set up my gluing area first by setting down some paper, I have my side and my trim ready to be glued onto my side and then I set three clamps underneath so I could put the glue on adn clamp it on right away. Now on our trim piece you want to apply a fairly liberal amount of glue and then spread that around with your finger adn then make sure that it gets completely covered. You are going to want to do this on the trim and on our side. Once we have applied the glue we are going to go ahead and set our trim up against our side and clamp it down. Make sure that trim is spaced so there is a litter bit of a over hang on each side. If you look at our trim we have a slight over hang on the top over our sheet of plywood, we also have a short overhang on the bottom we are going to trim this off later. Lastly we are going to take a wet paper towel and wipe away any excess glue. Make sure you do this for the top and the bottom. Now that our pieces are glue we can start on the next one. Now that our sides have been glued up we need to let them dry for 24 hours.
