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!
Lay out the first pieces. This will be the front, and all nails/screws will be attached to the back side of these pieces. If you have a pocket hole jig, go ahead and attach the top to the legs.
Then layer a row of 1x4s to the inside of the 2x4s.
Next, layer a row of 2x4s over the 1x4s. You can nail and glue from here on out.
Just continue to add layers until you get to the desired width.
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.
