1 - 1x12 @ 8 feet long
1 - 1x4 @ 3 feet long
1 - 1x2 @ 8 feet long
1/4" plywood or beadboard (try a wainscot panel) or 1/4 sheet
Start by cutting all your boards. When building, use 2″ nails and glue unless otherwise noted. Always nail into all available joining boards whenever possible. Always predrill before screwing.
A) 2 – 1×12 @ 21 1/2″ (Sides)
B) 1 – 1×12 @ 36″ – (Top)
C) 3 – 1×4 @ 34 1/2″ (Shelves)
D) 1 – 1×2 @ 34 1/2″ (Inside, top cleat)
E) 1/4″ plywood or beadboard, 34 1/2″ wide x 21 1/2″ tall (a wainscoat panel would do fine, about $7 at Lowes or Home Depot)
F) 1 – 1×3 @ 36″ (Back Toekick)
G) 2 – 1×2 @ 7 3/4″ (Inside Bottom Front Supports)
H) 1 – 1×2 @ 36″ (Countertop Trim for the Front)
I) 2 – 1×2 @ 20 3/4″ (Front Side Trim)
Start by nailing the shelves C to the sides A, as shown above. It is always a good idea to mark your sides first so you know exactly where the shelves will go. Keep the shelves flush with the sides on the back of the base unit, as shown above. After the shelves are in place, nail the countertop, B, to the sides, A.
Use 1 1/4″ nails to nail the cleat, D, shown in white, in place as shown above. Also nail through the sides of A into the end edges of D.
Mark your plywood according to the measurements in step 1, and then use the 1 1/4″ nails to nail the plywood in place, as shown above. It is always a good idea to check your project for square before adding plywood. If you do not know how to check for square, visit the HOW-TO section.
Add the back toekick, F, as shown above to the back of the base unit. Use the 2″ nails, and make sure you nail into both the sides and the bottom shelf.
On the front of the base unit, use the 1 1/4″ nails to nail the bottom supports G in place, as shown above.
Back to the 2″ nails. Nail the countertop trim, H, in place (shown in red above). Keep top and outside edges flush.
The final step is to nail the boards I in place, as shown above. The front side trim should be nailed to the sides, the supports, and you shoul also nail through the top of the countertop trim into the end edges of the front side trim pieces, I.
