Plywood backs

Once the pendulum case has been attached to the lower case, Vi" plywood backs can be screwed into rabbets routed around the back edges of both cases.

rout rabbets. First, lay the entire assembly face down across a pair of saw-horses. Then rout a W'-deep and W-wide rabbet around all four inside edges of both case openings, see Fig. 15. I did this with a rabbetting bit in the router. (For more 011 routing on the edge of a workpiece. see Shop Notes, page 16.)

With a chisel and mallet, square up the rounded corners of each of the rabbets.

cut panels. Now measure the size of each of these openings and cut a lower case back (I) and a pendulum case back (L) to fit from VV' plywood.

Also measure and cut a dust panel (J) to lay flat in the bottom of the kickboard assembly. see Fig. 15.

attach panels. Install the dust panel (with brads), and both case backs (with No. 6 x W Fh woodscrews). see Fig. 16.
