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!
Attach bottom to sides with either pocket holes (1-1/2" setting/2-1/2" pocket hole screws) or 2-1/2" wood screws countersunk. Then attach the shelf to the sides, (3/4" pocket holes - 1-1/2" pocket hole screws or 2-1/2" wood screws countersunk).
Attach back boards to sides and shelves with 2" screws and glue. Use screws because you will hang the shelf from these back boards and nails may give over time.
Attach front 1x4 board with 2" screws and glue. Attach hooks to front of board.
Hang to at least two studs in the wall with wood screws through the back of the shelf.
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.
