Notes About the Project:

Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood before assembly.

Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs, side frames, and slats. With the pocket hole jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces as well as the slats. Secure the slats to the frame pieces using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. Secure the side frame assembly to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The outside face of the side assemblies will be flush with the outside face of the legs.
