Example text

Mark the rounded corners on parts B, I, and L with a 2" radius, and make the cuts with a jigsaw (see How to Mark & Cut Curves, page 16). To save material, you can cut piece M from the cut-out center of piece I. Note: If you plan to cover parts M and/or L with vinyl (see step 6), cut the parts slightly smaller to account for the thickness of your vinyl cloth. If you won’t cover M with vinyl, drill two ¾"-diameter finger holes through the piece, as shown in the cutting diagram, using a ¾" spade bit and a backerboard to prevent tearout on the bottom face.

Measure up 10" from each of these lines and draw two more lines on the leg’s inside face. The top lines of each pair represent the top faces of the shelves when installed; the bottom lines are for locating screws. Measuring in from the rear edge of the leg, mark the lower lines at 3" and 6". Stack the legs back-to-back, with the marked leg on top, and clamp the pieces down to a backerboard. Make sure all outer edges are aligned. Drill a ⅛" pilot hole through both legs at each mark. Unclamp the legs, flip them both outside-face up, and countersink the holes on the outside faces to a maximum depth of 5⁄16", using a pilot-countersink bit.

Stand one leg up, and line up one shelf against the leg’s face. Drive drywall screws through the two pilot holes, turning each just until the head prevents it from going any deeper. Be careful not to torque these screws, as they can easily strip in the edges of the shelves. Repeat to fasten the other shelf to the same leg. Then fasten the remaining leg to both shelves in the same manner. The legs, post, and shelves are now one unit. 9. Install the L-angle. Cut the 30" piece of L-angle into four equal pieces, using a hacksaw or reciprocating saw.
