Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Build your ends as shown above, either with 3/4" Kreg Jig Pocket Holes and 1 1/4" pocket hole screws or 2 1/2" screws and a countersink bit.
Drill holes for dowel as shown in diagram with 3/8" spade bit.
Once both sides are complete, join with bottom board. Leave a 3/4" gap under bottom board to allow paper to pass under.
Simply insert your dowel and you're done building!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
