Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless.

Cut the pieces for the legs, side frames, and side panels. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes at each end of the frame pieces and on the side panels as shown. Assemble using glue and 2” pocket hole screws. The back of the panels should be flush with the inside face of the legs.
Cut the pieces for the baseboard trim. Attach to the lower part of the side panels with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails.
Cut the piece for the back. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach to the side panels using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.
Cut the pieces for the stretchers. Drill pocket holes in each end. Attach at the spacing indicated using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.
Cut the piece for the bottom. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach to the side panels using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.
Cut the pieces for the cubby trim. Cut a decorative curve with a jigsaw and glue in place.
Cut the piece for the top. If desired, use a router and a router bit to cut a roundover on the front and side edge. Attach using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the top into the back, legs, sides, and aprons.
Cut the pieces for the drawer box. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. Attach the bottom with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails.
Cut the piece for the drawer front and pre-drill the holes for the handles. There will be an 1/8” gap around all sides of the drawer front. Place the drawer front in the opening and shim in place. Drive screws through the holes for the handles to temporarily hold the front in place. Open the drawer and attach the front to the drawer box from the inside with 1-1/4” screws. Finish drilling out the holes for the handles.
