You may wish to prefinish the boards before assembly as we did in the video tutorial.
Drill two 3/4" pocket holes on each end of the 1x3s and attach with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
ALTERNATIVE: Nail 1x1 material to the inside of the 2x2s as a cleat and lay 1x3s on top and attach with 1-1/4" brad nails as done in the video tutorial.

Do you ever put top coats on your furniture? I never hear you mention it in the videos so it seems like you just go with stained raw wood. My personal favorite has become Arm-R-Seal from General Finishes but I was curious about what you liked to use if you do at all.
