Materials and Tools:

walnut trim
finishing nails
adhesive activator
table saw
chop saw
pneumatic nail gun
level

Steps:

1. Cut down a panel of the prefinished 1/4-inch maple with the table saw.

2. Using the chop saw, cut four strips of walnut trim with ends mitered at a 45-degree angle to fit around the panel. The strips should have a precut rabbet groove, if they don't, run them through a table saw to form the grooves.

3. Frame the strips of walnut trim together to form a rectangle that will surround the panel. Spray adhesive activator along the cut edges and stick them together so they adhere without the use of nails.
