Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs, side frames, and side panels. Drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces as well as all four edges of the panels. Secure the frame pieces to the panels using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws, then secure the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The outside face of the panel assembly will be flush with the outside face of the legs.
