Step 7: Edge Profile

The horizontal shelves have a chamfered edge.

Mark the edges of the boards that will be chamfered to ensure that you profile the correct edge.

The bottom of each module has the top edge chamfered, where as the middle and top horizontal shelves have the chamfer on the bottom edge.

The chamfer is best cut on a router table or shaper with a chamfering bit. The angle of the chamfer is 33 degrees and is cut 1/8” deep.
