Measure, mark and cut the top, side and back pieces. For the top you will need to cut (3) 1” x 6” x 55½” pieces. For the sides you will need to cut (4) 1” x 6” x 21¼” pieces and (2) 1” x 4” x 21¼” pieces. For the back, cut the sheet 21¼” x 52”. TIP: Ask to have the sheet cut at the hardware store. Remove rough cut edges from all boards with sandpaper.
