Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we would be making our shelves. Using the remainder of my birch plywood and then some additional scrap material I'm first going to rip my boards down to 9 inches. Next I'm going to cross cut my material down to my width. Then I'm going to be making some trim using some scrap material. After sizing out trim we are ready to glue it, clamp it, and pin nail it in place just like we have done with all the other trim pieces on our project.
