4 - 2x4 @ 70"
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!
First, build all of the shelves as pictured, using 1-1/2" pocket holes and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws. You can also drill pocket holes for attaching legs in next step.
Attach legs to shelves, either with pocket holes or 3" wood screws. Attach top to shelves with 3" wood screws.
Cut pipe 1" longer than outside dimensions of shelf (should be 43"). Drill holes to match pipe size 1" from back, 8" from top of lower shelf. Thread pipe through holes. If the holes are drilled snug, the pipe will stay in place without added hardware.
Attach caster wheels to base of project. I also added metal brackets to the corners for an added industrial style touch.
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.
