This is my first project I have done in my new shed it's not the best sense I don't have a circular saw. But the first thing you do cut 2 boards for the face and base 5 and a half inches by 5 and a half inches, then for the face I used a more nice looking wood aspen wood it's 5 and a half by 5 and and all the sides cut to 5 by 5.

Step 2: Sanding
