Cut the top and bottom pieces

We used poplar for the tops and bottoms, and 3/4" Baltic birch plywood for the spacers, but any solid stock or plywood will do.

Start by cutting the parts to size [Drawing 1]. Then, to create the clamp slots, lay out on each top piece the centerpoints for the holes that create the corners of each slot [Drawing 1a].

Note: As shown, the 1"-wide slots accept the head of an
F-style bar clamp. You can make the slots as wide as the distance between the spacers, if you like.
