Step 1: Mark Out The Wood

Here, you have a template I made that you can use to help you know what your

Take your measuring tape and mark it according to the sizes in the blueprint.

Also as you can see I have extension poles and wheels, originally, I wanted it to have height so I can work while standing or without putting it on top of something

Step 2: Cut The Wood

Next i had my dad supervise me as I took the power saw and
cut out the pieces of wood and had him trim it for me on his table saw since some of them were off measurement. So don't worry if you cut the wood just make sure that opposite side have the same size so cut them together. When it comes to the front panels they have to cover the front if their too small then you have to do it again.

Step 3: Nailing It In

Now its finally time to put it together, get your hammer and your nail and
start hammering, do everything except the front panels. be careful though, not to nail it in the wrong way for example;

I turned it over on its side and started nailing it in then when i was done I forgot to flip it back and started nailing in the other piece. I stopped half way and put it down,that's when I realized I nailed it the wrong way. So i ended pulling out the all the nails its annoying and time consuming.

Now I hope that your father will allow you to build a small shop in your backyard !
