Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
2 - 1x8 @ 13 1/2"

1 - 1x3 @ 36"
Cut the supports out with a jigsaw. Just go slow, take your time and cut one at a time. When you are happy with the first, use it as a pattern to cut the second.
Mark the underside of the top shelf 3" in from each end. Then attach supports with either the Kreg Jig or with countersunk screws and glue.
Then attach the back hook board to the sides in the notched space as shown above. I actually used my 1 1/4" pocket hole screw and glue.
Now attach the hooks. TIP: I hung my shelf by simply screwing through the back supports and then hid the screws with the hooks :) But you can use D-Rings, picture hanging kits, or even screw hole covers.
