Although some plans are shown at appropriate stages throughout the course of these instructions, the plans are also in a complete group in Chapter eight.
Out of ¾" (19mm) thick boards I ripped (cut lengthwise) two different size strips, 1 1/8;" (28mm) for the
top rails and 1 3/8" (35mm) for the bottom rails.
I ripped enough of each size to allow for the following:
For the top rails I cut 2 @ 34¼" (856mm) and 2 @ 32¾" (820mm).
For the bottom rails, the same - 2 @ 34¼" (856mm) and 2 @ 32¾" (820mm).
The corner posts
I cut four pieces of 2½" x 2½" (62mm x 62mm) wood to the length of 8¼" (206mm).
Making up the box unit
I lay two corner posts apart 32¾" (820mm) overall and fixed the top rail to the top and the bottom rail to the bottom, creating an oblong frame 32¾" (820mm) x 8¼" (206mm). Then I made another, two in all.
I stood the above two frames on end and fixed the other appropriate rails (top and bottom) as per picture.
