Supplies: 2 boxes of 2 1/2” Kreg Jig (8) 2” x 4” x 8’ stain (I used Minwax Wipe-On Poly) corner brackets Final size: 28” deep x 24” tall x 24” wide 1. Cut all your boards to size. 2. Next you will spend some serious time with your Kreg Jig. This bad boy is filled with pockethole to give it a nice tight fit. You will want think through where you drill your pocketholes because there will be so many in it to keep it in place you don’t want them to bump up to each other. Make sure your screws are in well but don’t pop through the other side. You want them nice and tight because 8 2” x 4” boards screwed together is a lot of weight so you want a tight hold. Also two pocketholes in the end of each board end might be overkill. I probably could have gotten away with one in each end and saved money on screws. Also keep in mind you don’t need to drill pocketholes on the last end board since you don’t need to attach that to another board (see bottom board in the picture below)
3. Next build the sides. The 21” piece will sit flush with your top, shelf and bottom. The 22” piece will give you the height. You will be able to see (unless you fill them) these pocketholes. But I hate filling pocketholes and it doesn’t bother me. See below for what I am talking about.
If you stain the pocketholes well and have stuff on the shelf it is no big deal. But if you are particular then you can fill them too.
4. I find it easier to stain all the pieces before assembly. I give everything a since it is a soft wood. I don’t want splotchiness. Use a small disposable paint brush or q-tip to get in the edges. I used Minwax Special Walnut on mine.
Now I have the depth I need to put all of the television equipment on and I also have space to tuck in a couple of blankets.
I look the little metal accents of the pared with the wood. So pretty.
