Instructions

Step 1

From two of the 1x12s @ 48" long, mark out cuts and cut with a jigsaw.  Sand cut edges until smooth and the two sides match each other.

Step 2

Cut the shelves from the remaining 1x12 so they are exactly the same length.  Drill pocket holes (3/4" setting) on each end (three per end).  Attach upper shelf first with a space of 8-3/4" under the upper shelf, pocket holes facing downward.  Then attach the bottom shelf.  Uses 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.

Step 3

Cut the 1x3s as desired with a jigsaw.  Attach on ends with pocket holes.  Attach to shelves with 1-1/4" brad nails and wood glue.

 

NOTE: To avoid pocket holes showing at the top, you can use screws or nails to attach the top 1x3.

Step 4

Acessories with hooks, mirror, closet rod and bins.  The bins shown here are sized to match the Target striped closet bins.
