Here is what you are building:
Wood- Have store cut plywood for you :)
- 1 top- plywood- 30 x 60 inches
- 2 sides- plywood- 18 x 30 inches
- 1 back- plywood- 18 x 60 inches
- 10 2x4's cut to 18 inches
- about 140 inches of trim (we did not trim the side against the wall, adjust yours accordingly)
- box of screws- 2 1/2 inches
- paint -brushes
- 2 L brackets
- wood glue (optional)
- small nails with no head for trim
- miter saw to cut 2x4's and trim
- drill with lots of battery power :)
- Ok Have all your 2x 4's and plywood cut to size? Then time to screw your 2x4's into your plywood back. 3 pieces evenly spaced flat along the back- leaving about 3/4 inch, or thickness of plywood, on both ends. (look closely at picture) We did 2 screws on bottom, 2 on top and you can use wood glue if you want.- *Unlike the picture go ahead and screw another 2x4 into the center back 2x4 making it double wide*. :)
- Make 2 Sides- only put 2 2x4's flat along the sides leaving one end with out a 2 x4.
- Connect sides to back. The "open" side of side piece then goes at a 90* angle to back piece in the 3/4 inch space you left. See picture.
6. Time to start the trim. Measure twice cut once. Use your nails to hold in place, optional wood glue.
8. Sand and smooth
9. Prime and prime again, and Paint!
