Make Final Measurements + Cuttings
Referring to measurements taken with measuring tape, measure, mark and cut five thin planks of the pallet to size with circular saw. One thin plank will be used as the shelf front while three others will make up the back support. A fifth plank will be cut to size for use as an accent shelf.
Use orbital sander to smooth finishes of vertical supports, top shelf bottom surface, shelf fronts, accent shelf and back supports.
Once all surfaces are smooth, attach the top shelf front by first pre-drilling with 1/8-inch drill bit (Image 1), then securing with nails using hammer (Image 2). After top shelf front is attached, repeat the same process for attaching the top shelf bottom surface, accent shelf and back supports.
