Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the legs, side frames, side panels, and inner side panels. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the side frame pieces. Attach to the legs as shown using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in the side panels and inner panels as shown. Attach to the legs using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

The back face of the panels will be flush with the inside face of the legs.

Step 2
