Drill Pocket Holes
Drill pocket holes in the locations shown. Ensure you drill the pocket holes on the 36" SPAN pieces in the correct direction to attach the top. It may help to lay things out in advance.
Pay close attention to the locations and the depth settings for the frame pieces versus the shelf.
Assemble the End Frames
Layout the LEG and SIDE SPAN pieces on a flat surface and ensure all pocket holes are facing downward so you will not see them in the final product.
Assemble the end frames as shown using wood glue and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws. The bottom SPAN pieces should be 3" from the bottom of the leg (or you can customize if you'd like them higher or lower, this will not impact any of the rest of the build).
Attach the spans on the front and back. Ensure the pocket holes that will be used to attach the top are facing in the correct direction. Use wood glue and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
Insert the shelf piece in the open area and keep it flush to the top of the spans on all sides.
Proceed to attach using 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Center the top on the frame with 1/2" overhang on all 4 sides.
Attach with wood glue and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws from the under-side.
Sand, stain or paint the final product.
