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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4
