Step 1

Market Base for Grace's Town Collection

First cut out the side pieces, A, as shown above. Use the above measurements to guide you. Once you cut one out, use the finished piece as a pattern for the other pieces.

Step 2

Market Base for Grace's Town Collection

Cut out the bin dividers E the same as above.

Step 3

Market Base for Grace's Town Collection

As shown above, nail through the sides into the shelves. The easiest way to do this is to mark on the insides of the shelf boards A where you will place the shelves B.

Step 4

Market Base for Grace's Town Collection

Now add the Front Shelf, C, as shown above. Keep the front flush. See below for a section cut illustrating this.

Step 5

Step 9

Now add the front side trim, H, to the sides of the front shelves. Make sure you nail into all the shelves and the sides.

Now the footer, I, then cut out the arch in place. Cut out an arch as shown above. I started the arch 2 1/2″ in and went up 1 1/2″. Make sure you nail through the sides of the Front Side Trim pieces from step 9, pieces H, into the end edges of the footer, I.

Ana, Just wanted to let you

Ana,
Just wanted to let you know that my daughter & I built this together. A "stand to sell stuff from at the farmer's market" was the only thing she asked for on her 9th birthday. Then, I happened to notice these plans and knew I could make it work. I had to modify them, as she is quite a bit bigger than the age it was designed for, but it worked out wonderfully. I posted about it with the modifications on my blog here...

Thanks so much for all your hard work!

found error in plans

Found an error in the plans. It says:
D) 1 -1×10 @ 34 1/2″ (Center Divider)
But the space is for a 10" board. The 10" lumberyard board will be 9.25" wide, leaving a 0.75" gap (see step 5).
