  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 5348343d 50fc 4cb5 b4b9 5d273a7cdb96

      Make your cuts according to the cut list (below) with a Miter Saw. Note: After you make your cuts, stack your pieces to ensure they are exactly flush.

    2. Step: 2

      Large 2de16c0d 0004 4995 bd37 cc2750de9df4

      CUT LIST: (4 Pieces) 1x6 Pine @ 22.5" (2 Pieces) 1x6 Pine @ 18"

    3. Step: 3

      Large aedf604e 3fe2 4e0c a984 fb309b7a391a

      Lightly sand each piece to remove any rough edges. Note: Sanding prior to assembly will make for a better finished product

    4. Step: 4

      Large 8a400a04 3598 4f89 8b7d 75b9c81cdfdf

      Take the 2 side pieces (18" boards). Measure from the bottom 3 inches and draw a line. Next, measure 5-7/16" from the top and draw another line (a speed square will help). Do this on both boards. Note: This line will mark where the horizontal boards will be put into place.

    5. Step: 5

      Large 3971e286 d016 4a5c 981b e56488d1ebb9

      Turn the boards over. Put a small mark 1-1/2" up from the bottom, and 2" from the front. Where those points intersect, mark this spot. Note: you will be drilling into these spots at a later step

    6. Step: 6

      Large 1a975ba7 cf22 43cf 8014 3cf1f2f32d1a

      Next, put a small mark in from the front 3/4", and down from the top of the board 2-3/4". Where these points intersect, mark this spot. Note: You will be drilling into these spots at a later step

    7. Step: 7

      Large 6e465eff 7cbe 45c5 a346 f630820ca39f

      On one of the 18" boards, drill (with a 1/4" drill bit), a hole completely through the board at the two previously marked spots. Repeat for the second 18" board. Note: This is where the rod will thread through

    8. Step: 8

      Large b4d44500 91b1 4ab0 951a b099b3332f29

      Now, drill overtop of the previous 4 holes with a 3/4" Forstner bit halfway through the board. VERY IMPORTANT: Do NOT drill all the way through the board. Note: This is to make room for the 1/4" nut and washer.

    9. Step: 9

      Large 0b7f96ab 93a5 49ef 8fd8 99c1726cc356

      After drilling with the Forstner bit, your wood pieces should look like this image.

    10. Step: 10

      Large bf49a51f 85c8 4927 b2b2 22f42946cac3

      Next, locate the original lines you drew from step 4, set the pieces up where the lines face inward towards each other. Line up the (2) horizontal shelves (22.5" pieces) in the spaces previously marked. Make sure you place each shelf BELOW the line, not above it.

    11. Step: 11

      Large 28dfa058 5dd5 4433 b50a 7c45f45e949b

      Add a little wood glue to the ends of the horizontal shelves and fit it into place.

    12. Step: 12

      Large 9cb53991 953b 4c37 a8cb f4dcda9251ee

      Nail into place using the 18GA Brad Nailer Note: use NO smaller than 1-1/8" brad nails.

    13. Step: 13

      Large 9b73241f d6af 43a5 9f7a 30b718e6bfb9

      Take remaining 22.5" boards, add wood glue to sides and bottom of each. Place flush to the back, directly on top of horizontal shelves and nail into place. Note: start with the top piece first to make the process easier.

    14. Step: 14

      Large cbf336c8 17f2 4e58 ad83 c995812ee747

      At this stage, your shelves should look like this image

    15. Step: 15

      Large a3b31d19 243b 494d 982a 8aae40982122

      Next, cut 1/4" threaded rod, 2 pieces at 24" each. You can make these cuts with a Metal Chop Saw, or Grinder. Note: If you don't have these tools, you local Home Depot can make these cuts for you.

    16. Step: 16

      Large 149f2281 fabb 4bcb b2cc 8665f1059bb4

      Insert threaded rod through the top and bottom holes and fasten a nut and washer to each end. Note: DO NOT over tighten.

    17. Step: 17

      Large 21bd15a3 5f7c 4460 b3c3 27ca1d73b766
