Your shelf help pieces arrive precut with a finished front edge. All Shelf Help projects - no matter the size - follow the same assembly pattern - shelves attached to dividers/sides. We recommend using a pocket hole jig and screws to build the carcass of your project.Assembly Tips
Our Shelf Help carcasses come with a finished front edge, so a face frame is NOT required. But if you want to further strengthen and trim your project, you can measure and cut a face frame and add to the front.Face Frame Tips
Add a Back
A back is not required, but can increase strength and contain items in your shelving. We recommend 1/4" PureBond Maple Plywood (matches the Shelf Help) but you can use almost anything!Tips for Adding a Back
A solid wood top is perfect for desks, consoles, or benches. It's easy to add using hardwood material to match your doors or drawers. You can also use a countertop or just trim out a plywood panel.Tips for Adding a Top
The final step is finishing your project. Since it's all raw wood, you can achieve almost any stain or paint you can dream up!
