Attach Beadboard

Mark and cut, according to measurements, 4x8-foot sheets of pressure-treated beadboard into two side panels and one rear panel (image 1). Add wood glue along exterior of side- and rear-panel frames (image 2), and attach beadboard using a nail gun (image 3).

Attach Shelves

Use a chop saw to cut 2x2-inch pressure-treated pine to the proper depth needed to accommodate each recycling bin. Attach 2x2-inch pieces to side-panel framing with 2-inch exterior wood screws using a drill. Keeping these measurements in mind, cut a shelf surface from a 4x8-foot sheet of pressure-treated, paint-grade plywood using a table saw.

Attach Fascia

Measure the overall width and height of the recycling center with measuring tape. Mark and cut fascia from pre-primed pressure-treated 1x3-inch trim according to the measurements. Attach along the front with a nail gun.
