Mark the sides with a carpenter's square and cut off at a 45 degree angle, 4" back and 4" up.
Then attach the back with 1-1/4" brad nails and glue to the two sides. Repeat for the top and back 1x3.
TIP: If you have a pocket hole jig, you can also attach all boards in this step with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket holes crews, placing pocket holes on the back or top sides so they are hidden when finished.
Attach 1x3 to the top, so it is flush to the back and 1/2" overhangs on the ends, with 1-1/4" brad nails and wood glue.
Apply glue to the front edge of 1x3 and top and add the remaining 1x8 top board, so it overhangs 1/2" on sides and front.
Attach with 1-1/4" brad nails and wood glue.
Fill nail holes with wood filler. Lightly sand as needed with 120 grit sandpaper. Paint or stain as desired.
Add hooks, I positioned my hooks centered on each bay, slightly lower than center to allow for easy use of hooks.
