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!
Mark the 2x8 board as specified above - dowels are space 4-1/4" apart from center to center, 2-1/2" spacing from outsides
Drill holes for the dowels with a bit sized for the dowels.
Drill smaller holes inside the larger hole for attaching screws through the back. This screw should go all the way through the back.
Glue dowels inside the larger holes.
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.
