Instructions

Step 1

Build three of the leg sets.  On the bottom horizontal piece, it may be easier to place pocket holes on sides instead of top/bottom if you don't have a right angle drill.

If you want to finish your legs different than the rest of the piece, paint or stain the legs now - it will be much more difficult after further assembly.

Step 2

Build the four shelves as shown above.

Step 3

Attach aprons between legs.  

Step 4

Mark back legs at a 45 degree angle and attach bottom shelf inside. 

Step 5
