I include a list of materials, tools, dimensions, and images for the participant to use as a guide for their own creations. The participants are free to express themselves and are encouraged to paint the base of the plywood box to add their own signature flair.

Step 1: D.I.Y. Room Divider

Have plywood cut at local hardware store:

• Top + Bottom: Two ¾” panels of plywood @ 60”l x 20”h

• Back: One ¾” panel of plywood @ 60”l x 3.375”h

• Sides + Middle Beam: Three ¾” thick panels of plywood @ 19.25”l x 3.25”h

Step 2: Laying Out + Drilling Holes

Layout the bottom panel @ (60”l x 20”h) with the three side pieces @ (20” x 3.375”), and the back panel @ (60”l x 3.25”h). Clamp, and flip over to pre-drill into the bottom face.

Step 3:

Use the “Drill Hole” template to mark where you will pre-drill into the plywood box.

Step 4:

Once all holes are drawn, proceed to pre-drill the holes with a 7/64” drill bit to drill through the bottom piece @ (60”l x 20”h x ¾”w) and 1/4” into the clamped side and back panels. Next switch the drill bit with the 11/64” counter sink driver bit holes 1/8” deep in into the plywood.

Step 5:

Once the back panel and the three beams are secure, apply a dab of wood glue before screwing together.

Simple, and lovely. I really like the blues you used on the shade.
