Step 1: Prep

I prepped the wood by giving it a base coat.

Then I cut the trim pieces to the size I wanted with a compound miter saw.

I also cut the metal into the 2 pieces I needed using the vertical bandsaw. I used the disk sander to take off the rough edges.

Step 2: Mocked Up

I then mocked everything up.

Step 3: Glue and Clamp

I used liquid nail for gluing the metal down and wood glue for the trim.

I used some deep clamps to lightly hold the pieces.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Before adding some old drawer knobs, it got a fresh coat of paint.

*note I did not add the measurments or paint as they are variables.
