  • Lay out the shelf pieces on a flat surface, making sure the large holes in the 2- x 4-inch boards are on the top.
  • Arrange the pieces into their final layout and place the 2- x 4-inch boards on end with the shelves in between.
  • The bottom shelf should be flush with the bottom of the side boards, and the remaining two shelves should be spaced 10 inches apart.
  • Use clamps to apply light pressure and hold the shelf together. Make sure all the shelves are also flush with the back of the sides pieces.
  • Double-check the shelf spacing with your tape measure and lightly tap on any shelves that need adjustments.
