Okay - just build the box bottom as shown here. If you don't have a Kreg Jig, you can certainly countersink or even nail and glue.
TIP: If you wish to attach top with pocket holes, drill two 3/4" PHs facing upward on the inside of the sides for attaching the top in later steps.
Then add the back supports. I actually adjusted my placement for the length of my necklaces. Remember, you can loop necklaces a couple times around a nail to shorten.
TIP: You'll hang the cabinet through a screw through these back supports.
Now add the top.
And then the back. Again, back is optional.
And a cheat sheet ...
May I suggest cutting blocks 2 3/4" long and placing inside the project?
Then when you go to put the hinges on, just rest the door on the blocks!
And I just nailed a nail every inch or so for hanging the necklaces.
And stapled on hardware cloth with 1/2" staples from the back. Use tin snips to cut the wire - it's much easier than wire cutters. Or try to find spring loaded wire cutters.
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.
