Once you have all of the cross member extrusions in place be very careful when moving the top around.

Alignment and tightening the top is similar to the base. Since there is only one extrusion between corner brackets, you can tighten both the top and bottom screws at the same time during alignment.

Wrap the cord around the top and pass it through the loop. Pull the cord tight and tie off to the cord itself, don't tie it off around the cross member like you did in Step 14.

The photo shows a simple overhand knot holding the cord tight.

Move the top to the flattest smooth surface you can – a granite kitchen counter, smooth Formica™ counter or even a smooth table top work well. Just make sure it is clean (no crumbs!) and flat.
