  • How much did this cost??
    By Tracy relyea, on January 19, 2018

  • I love your work. I was wondering, can you elaborate on how to attach the middle shelf? For instance what do you mean by toenail?

  • Seem's your top piece would be 17, 3/4 to allow for overhang, unless you put strips along top for overhang. Can you clarify please? Thanks!

  • If you are building a horizontal closet, make sure you build small enough to fit through the closet opening without damaging drywall. Our closet opening is 5 feet wide, and the closet interior was 6 feet wide, so I built this closet in the middle - just under 5-1/2 feet wide and it fit in easily. Do measure and double check. Good luck building and please share, it's a big deal seeing your amazing projects! XO Ana

  • Would love an explanation on the leg cuts: "2 – 2x3 @ 72” (can also use 1x3 or 2x4 if 2x3s cannot be sourced) – both ends cut at 10 degrees off square, long point to short point, ends are parallel" and then Step 4: Top Ends of Legs Use a square to mark back top edges of legs perpendicular to top 10 degree cut, so 6” is cut off at back side. Cut with circular saw Completely baffled by these cuts. Thanks Mike

  • Hi Mike, sorry for the confusion. First, set your miter saw to 10 degrees off square. Then cut the 2x3s so both ends are cut at 10 degrees off square, the ends are parallel, and the length is 72" from the long point to short point, following one edge of the 2x3. Then use a speed square to mark the back where the shelf will sit against the wall square to the top as done in step 1 of this plan Hope this makes sense.

  • 2 questions..... 1. Why is that last cut 6 1/4" when all the rest are to the inch 2. Are the feet cut on an angle to sit flush on the floor?
    By Jpurdie, on February 10, 2017

  • Hi, sorry for any confusion. The 6-1/4" comes from 5-1/2" wide 1x6 plus 3/4" to equal 6-1/4" The other cuts are even numbers because the board widths for 1x10 and 1x8 are 9-1/4" and 7-1/4" wide. Yes the bottom legs are cut at an angle to sit flat on floor.

  • If I don't have brad nailer, will I be able to do this with a good old hammer and nails?

  • I have a narrow space behind my toilet. This would work perfect, but I need to adjust it to fit 21inches wide total. Could you help me figure this out. Thanks :)

  • Good evening, I am using this plan to add some much needed storage to a bathroom and the 10-degree cuts do not seem to make sense for both the top and bottom. If I cut the bottom at 10-degrees off square, my measurement at 72" (starting 6" from the top) would be at 21.5-degrees off square. Unless I am looking at this incorrectly. I am also using Google Sketchup to visualize my build based on the instructions before I begin. Thank you.

    • Nevermind... looks like my angles somehow were messed up...
      By JWest82, on March 14, 2018
    • I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong with the top angle please help!!!
      By TonyJones, on March 9, 2020
    • @TonyJones  you still having issues? I’ll be doing this soon and I’m pretty sure it’s related to a ladder shelf build I did from Ana White’s website so I know how to make that cut at the top. You can email me at gilly775(at) where you put the @ symbol instead of (at) in the email

  • I’m having a hard time understanding how to cut the angle at the top of the 2x3. 
    By Stephen5, on October 23, 2018
    • Did you figure it out?
      By TonyJones, on March 9, 2020

    • I can't find the measurements. Where did you find them?
      By Nancybo, on June 4, 2016

  • I'm soooo looking forward to my first build. Thanks for making this so easy. For those of you looking for the measurements up at the top is a link. Right Below "Outdoor Coffee Table" is the link.
