Cut the pieces for the side panels. Set the pocket hole jig for 3/4″ material and drill pocket holes in all four edges of the panels. Insert the panel into the frame positioning it so that the back face is flush with the inside face of the frame. Secure using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

Step Five

Cut the pieces for the dividers and the cubby dividers. Cut the notch in the larger divider using a jigsaw, then drill pocket holes as shown. Note that there will be a left and a right piece. Attach the cubby dividers to the larger divider using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails. To aid in positioning the pieces, cut 4″ spacers from scrap wood to ensure that the cubby dividers are evenly spaced.

Insert the entire divider assemblies into the cabinet and secure in place using 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws through the holes drilled in the larger divider piece. Secure the cubby dividers with 1-1/4″ brad nails through the side panels into the cubby dividers.

Step Eight

Cut the pieces for the X shelves. Cut a 15 degree bevel as indicated in each of the smaller pieces. This will allow the pieces to be constructed in the angle to fit into the center. Drill pocket holes as shown, then attach to the longer single piece using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

Insert the X shelves into the cabinet as shown. There will be no need to secure them to the cabinet.
