Now make another 6 pieces measuring 6 by 12 inches for the shelves and sides, and lastly cut out the last 2 pieces for the back and front measuring 41 by 13 inches. Once you have marked and cut all the plywood to the required measurements, grab a little sandpaper and smooth the edges. Lay down the two side pieces.... On one side of both pieces, measure 1/2 inches in from one end then proceed to draw a straight line across the top of the board. Then Measure 5 1/2 inches from the previous line and mark out another line across the plywood.
Now from the line you just marked, add another 1/2inch space and draw another line. Measure 5 1/2 inches and draw a line. Duplicate this process for each piece, but be sure to change the 5 1/2-inch gap to 8 inches on the remaining space. Repeat the process for the second side board. Now Turn over one piece on it's side. Grab one of the six shelving plywood pieces and line it to that side making sure it is perpendicular to that previous side piece you have laid down. Now you will need to carefully Line it up to one of the half-inch gaps you marked down in the previous step. Place a leveler on top of those two pieces and carefully hammer nails through the side piece to connect the two. Check the leveler frequently to ensure a even connection.
