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!
Begin building the legs by attaching 1x2s to the tops and bottoms of the legs. Check and adjust for square. Build 2.
Add the rails for the laundry baskets. Make sure you measure your baskets and adjust to fit.
Add bottoms and tops with screws.
Adjust the entire project for square, and add the back boards. Also screw the bottom back board to the bottom 1x4 board.
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.
