Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! 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. 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, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.

Step 1

Cut the legs with the taper as indicated.

Cut the pieces for the blocks. The one of the blocks will be positioned on the same side of the leg as the taper. Attach to the legs as shown using glue and countersunk 2-1/2” screws. Keep in mind there will be two right legs and two left legs.

Step 2
Step 2

Cut the aprons as indicated. Attach to the blocks on the legs with countersunk 2-1/2” screws and with the taper facing the long side. Make sure the apron is flush with the outside facing edges of the legs.

Step 3

Cut the frame supports as indicated. Secure to the frame as shown with glue and countersunk 2-1/2” screws. The 2×8 will be positioned with the wider edge facing up while the 2x4s are positioned on end.

Cut the pieces for the top frame supports. Attach to the side aprons between the blocks using glue and 2-1/2” screws.

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the top frame. The longer frame pieces will be positioned 1” from the outside edge of the legs and secured to the longer aprons using glue and countersunk 2-1/2” screws.

The shorter frame pieces will be attached using glue and countersunk 2-1/2” screws into the side aprons.

Step 5

Cut the piece for the center top divider. Position the piece as shown and secure to the 2×8 support piece using glue and countersunk 2-1/2” screws.

Cut the pieces for the other dividers. Position the pieces as shown and secure to the supports using glue and 2-1/2” screws.

Cut the pieces for the panels. The pieces can be arranged in a random order but each panel needs to have 2 – 2x2s, 2 – 2x3s, and 2 – 2x4s in order to fit into the 15” opening.  It would be a good idea to finish the panels before attaching them to the top in case there are gaps in between the boards.

Secure in place using glue and 2-1/2” screws through the bottom of the supports into the panel pieces.
