This was our very first build. I had spent many hours on Ana-White.com checking out plans, looking at the details of how things were built. I even downloaded Sketchup and learned it fairly quickly. The only thing left to do at that point was to buy some lumber. Well... that was going to be tough because my husband and I live off of social security disability (at the ripe old age of 34 3/4) so money was pretty tight.

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!
Take all of pieces (C) and mark 3” from the front and back sides and 8” from the top. Here is where you will drill the holes from your adjustable shelving. You will need a drill bit the same size as the shelving pins (in our case it was a ¼” drill bit) and a lock collar or a piece of masking tape. Measure from the end of your drill bit ½” and set your lock collar or place your masking tape to act as a depth guide. We don’t want to go all the way through the board! Keep track of your pieces as you will need to make sure that the holes for the adjustable shelving are in the inside of the end sections. See diagram for hole drilling details
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.
We used water based Minwax in Coffee and then applied a coat of furniture wax by Minwax to add a bit of luster.
