Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs. Mark the taper in the lower end of the leg and cut using a jigsaw, bandsaw, or tapering jig on the tablesaw.

Cut the pieces for the side frames, the lower stretchers, and the panels. With the pocket hole jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes in each end of the 1×2 frame pieces, as well as all four edges of the panels. Set the pocket hole jig for 1-1/2″ material and drill pocket holes in each end of the 2×2 pieces.

Secure the frame pieces and stretchers to the legs as shown using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws through the 3/4″ material and 2-1/2″ pocket hole screws through the 1-1/2″ material. Secure the panel to the legs and frame pieces using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The back face of the panel will be flush with the inside faces of the legs and frame pieces.
