The rails

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).

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.
