Once all of your rough cuts are square, glue up your panels. Start with the top, bottom, and two sides along with the back support. Once the panels dry cut and flatten them to final size and dimensions in the plans.

Back Panels

Re- saw or mill your back panel material of choice while the carcass dries. Cut your rabbets in the carcass and in the panels. Use the interior measurement in the carcass for your back panel measurement. Place panels and attach with glue and brad nails
