Cut Particle Board and Flashing
Cut particle board shelving to desired length of magnetic board. Tip: Keep overall length less than 36 inches for ease of building. Add two inches to overall length of particle board shelving and mark flashing to this length. Cut flashing with tin snips.
Cut Flashing Corners
Lay shelf on top of flashing piece. Center shelf with approximately one inch of flashing surrounding shelf. Trace shelf with a permanent marker and cut corners of flashing.
Bend flashing around shelving. Tip: Use a scrap board and hammer to crease flashing on edges. Attach flashing to shelving with 2-inch screws and drill every 12 inches.
