Cut the 1x boards using a compound miter saw (preferred) or a circular saw with a guild - straight square cuts are very important to the success of your project.
Back plywood should be cut with a circular saw.
Drill three 3/4" pocket holes on each end of all the shelf boards and the 1x4 boards for top.
Attach to the 1x12 side and divider to create a shelf.
Distance between shelves can be customized to suit your storage needs, but at least one fixed shelf need to be placed in the center, and the bottom and top 1x4 need to be secured with screws.
Attach with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Add the hook side storage as you did in step 1.
Also pocket hole screw the 1x8 to the underside of the shelf above for added support.
Build the face frame first with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Use 1-1/4" brad nails to secure to the front of the project with glue.
All outside edges should be flush.
Attach 1/4" plywood back to back, nail on with 3/4" brad nails and glue.
Attach 1x6 and 1x8 together at long edge with glue and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Then attach to top of project with glue and 1-1/4" nails. A few screws are recommended to further attach top top - in case the wood decided to warp on you.
Cut 1x2 boards to fit the base, and nail and glue with 1-1/4" brad nails.
Build the barn door frame with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Lay the 1x2 under the finished frame, and trace where it meets the 1x4 frame. Cut on your pencil lines. Attach inside the frame with pocket holes.
Cut 1/4" plywood to fit the back of the door.
Use 3/4" brad nails and glue to secure.
