Make the case
Cut parts A–C for the sides [Materials List, Drawing 1], and arrange them as mirror images. Mark part letters and orientation (right, left) on the outside faces with chalk. Also indicate the grooved edges. Cut the tenons and grooves to match the thickness of the panels (D). Tip! To reduce cost, we used birch plywood for the interior case parts. Extend cost savings by substituting solid walnut for the panels (D) instead of purchasing expensive walnut plywood.
