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!
3 5 1/2" cedar fence picket @ 15"
6 5 1/2" cedar fence picket @ 5 1/2"
6 5 1/2" cedar fence picket @ 16" (cut last to fit)
Cut 5 1/2 " cedar fence picket for bottom first. Then attach both ends, cut sides last to fit. I used a Ryobi Airstrike Stapler and 1 1/4" galvanized for exterior staples. Make 3 of these boxes.
Attach both 1 x 2 @ 24" flush to back as shown on each side. Used the 1 1/4" staples.
Add 1 x 2 cross support 6" from bottom of outside 1 x 2's. Used staples to attach.
Cut 2 1x2's @ 27 3/4". Cut both ends 30 degrees parallel short point to long point. Make flush with top as shown. Attached with staples.
Now it's time to attach other 2 boxes to frame. I turned the project upside down and placed a scrap 1 x 3 board as a spacer to aid in attaching the first and second box. As shown in diagram, make box flush to front when attaching.
