Step 1: Frame
Basic frame. It sits about 18in tall made with pine 1x4s and oak 1/4in ply. I used a pocket hole jig to hide the screws to build all four sides then connected them all with screws as you can see in the picture. I cut the curves out of the 1x4s with a jigsaw, i sketched the design on with a pencil first then cut it out.
(I forgot to take pictures prior to this because i didnt plan on making a instructable)
Step 2: Backing and Lid
It stands about 70in tall and 55in long
Tried using the staple gun to hold the sheets of ply up but that was a fail so i just used 1/2in screws for that and it worked out a lot better.
Inside i put 5 pieces of 1x2 for support and some sheets of oak ply over it.
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Final touches added (stain/hooks) made this for my wife's birthday :)
