Step 2: Cut and Drill

Cut the 1x6  (3/4" x 5 7/16" for those who want the actual measurements) into pieces needed. For the one I made I cut the parts as follows:

qty 1 - bottom piece 15 1/4"
qty 2 - side piece 16 3/4"
qty 2 - end piece 10" 

 qty 1 - dowel 16 3/4"

Drill pilot holes around the edges as shown. I used a counterink bit so the screws will be flush with the surface once assembled.

Your kids are cute and they are having a good time. Great project!
