Step 1: Make Plywood
I had a lot of 1/8" face board and decided to turn it into plywood of varying thickness. First, cut the sheets down to desired sizes.
Step 2: Glue
Glue and clamp the sheets together.
Step 3: Trim
Trim all the pieces to uniform blocks.
Step 4: Posts
Attach the posts to the bases.
Step 5: Drill
Drill holes to accommodate the bars. Insert the dowels and secure with a screw.
Step 6: Feet
Glue imitation leather to the bottoms of the feet to prevent slipping. Trim the edges.
Step 7: Finish
Add a finish to the wood.
