4 - 1x3 boards, 8 feet long
1 - 1x12 board, 6 feet long
1-1/4" pocket hole screws (12)
1-1/4" finish nails
1-1/4" screws (for attach shelves to frame - could also use pocket hole screws)
4 caster wheels
3 - 1x12 @ 23-1/2"
6 - 1x3 @ 23-1/2"
6 - 1x3 @ 12-3/4" (measure and cut these to fit after step 1)
2 - 1x3 @ 26-1/4"
3 - 1x3 @ 25" (measure and cut to fit after step 2)
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!
I recommend doing the shelves first (lessons learned!) so you can measure the shelf, and make the ladder frame piece to fit. So attach 1x3s to the sides of the 1x12s with glue and 1-1/4" nails or staples.
Pocket hole lovers can also attach from underside with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Measure and cut to fit the side 1x3s, and attach as you did in step 1.
Measure the length of the shelves, and cut the 3 - 1x3 "rungs" to this length (I'd cut a hair longer so it's easy to slide your shelves in.
Construct the frame.
Position the shelves inside the frame, and attach on underside with 1-1/4" screws and glue. I also attached to side frame with nails and glue for added support.
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.
