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!
Attach the sides to top and top shelf. Use the dividers as spacers to help you attach the upper shelf in place.
These pieces can be either nailed and glued (1-1/2" long nails ideal) or pocket hole screwed.
Attach dividers with nails and glue.
Use 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws to attach dividers to underside of shelf.
Attach with screws or nails the lower shelf to the dividers and the sides. I recommend pocket holes to attach to sides.
Attach 1x3 at base to sides. Recommend 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws on back side.
Attach metal pieces to front and hardware cloth/chicken wire to back. Jaime has more information on the types of screws she used for the metal and how she attached the hardware cloth here.
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.
