This project requires only 2 sheets of pine 3/4" plywood. I purchased all the materials at Home Depot for $42.00 and had them cut all the materials to size right at the store for me. It took them about 15 minutes to cut everything and it took me about 2 hours to assemble and jig saw out the curves when I got home. Using my Kreg Jig really saved a ton of time. My wife put more before and after pictures on her blog http://kelley.mortier.org

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!
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.
