Step 1

Attach your Back Boards to each other staggering your Pocket Holes. Do the same for your Front Boards, the Base Boards, and the Seat. Bevel the Seat and Front Boards if you are choosing to do so. Create your Pocket holes for fastening these ‘pairs’ to each other as well. Then fasten the Back Boards to the Base Boards and the Base Boards to the Seat.

Finishing Instructions

Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired. For Finishing Tips and Tricks visit my Finishing School
