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!
Cut the sides and dividers first at 15 degrees off square. Note that the dividers are shorter than the sides. Then cut from the opposite side at 40 degrees. Label dividers and sides.
Attach top and bottom to dividers with 2" self tapping screws. If you wood splits, you'll need to predrill holes. Use glue at all joints.
Attach 1x4 to front with screws and glue.
Attach back to all dividers and sides and top and bottom with 3/4" brad nails and glue.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
