  • Assemble sides

    Drill Kreg Pocket holes on the inside ends of the 73 1/2" boards. Drill (3) pocket holes in the end of each side. (1) centered (2) 1" from the edge of the board.

  • Drill Pocket Holes

    Drill pocket holes on the end of each 13 1/2" board. You will need (3) Kreg pocket holes in each end. Again, (1) pocket hole will be centered, the other (2) will be placed 1" from either the edge. For a total of (6) pocket holes per board.

    Drill Kreg Pocket Holes in one end of the 33" boards. Again, you will need (3) pocket holes drilled. (1) will be centered, the other (2) will be one 1" from the edges.

  • 1st Shelf

    Attach the first "shelf" (33") to the "divider" (13 1/2"). Measure and make sure it is square before using 2" Kreg Pocket Screws to secure the divider to the "shelf.

  • 2nd Shelf

    Repeat Step 3. Once you have attached the second "divider" to the second "shelf" you will then insert and attach the other end of the "divider" to the first "shelf". Again, always make sure you align, and square your boards before securing with Kreg Screws.

  • 3rd Shelf

    Repeat Step 4.

  • Last Divider

    Insert the remaining "divider. Attach it centered on the end board and squared to the previous 33" shelf.

  • Insert Wood Plugs

    By using the wood plugs you will be able to easily conceal any pocket holes. Simply add a small dab of wood glue, and insert. I add a small amount of wood filler, once dry sand down until smooth.

  • Sand and Stain

    Once all wood filler is dry, sand down the entire unit, and then finish in your preferred paint/stain.
