  • Step 1. Preparing to build shelves

    Make sure you’re working on a stable, level surface. Check that your work area has enough height clearance for the size of shelf that you’re planning to build. It’s also a good idea to measure the height and width of the area to make sure the shelf will fit.
  • Step 2. Build the frame

    Gently tap the horizontal bars into the holes in the legs with your mallet. Position the horizontal bars on each leg so that your shelves are level. Every shelf also has a middle support bar. Install that so the shelf doesn’t bow in the middle under heavy weight. Once the middle bar is in place, install the timber shelf boards and you’re done.
