Happy Monday! It is a beautiful crisp fall day here in Colorado, and I am loving the changing leaves!

Kreg K5 Pocket-Hole Jig to drill pocket holes into each side of the short boards of the frame. I made sure to adjust my Kreg jig for the 1 1/2'' thick wood, setting it at 2 1/2''.
Then I glued the ends and used my awesome Kreg Automaxx Clamps to hold my frame in place while I nailed some 2'' finish nails into the sides and screwed in my 2 1/2'' pocket hole screws.
I forgot to drill 3/4'' pocket holes into the boards before I built the frame, so I had do do it afterwards. They are for attaching this frame to the 2x3 frame. So learn from my mistake and drill your pocket holes before you build, it just makes it easier!
I had some scrap boards left over from my How to make a Rustic Wheelbarrow post that I had built a few weeks ago, and they were calling to me..."use me, use me!" So I did. I am so nice. ;)
I set them at a diagonal and glued on my cut plywood piece, then I nailed through the back of the plywood into the 1x4 boards to secure them.
Ryobi Jig Sawto follow the cut lines.
Then I added my bottom 2x3 frame, this time pre drilling and screwing in 3'' screws through the 2x3 frame into the 1x3 frame.
Then I used wood glue to attach them with my pocket hole screws. I found it easier to use bar clamps to secure my boards.
Kreg Right Angle Clamps to hold them in place.
I used the bottom of my sink as a guide of where to place my holes, and cut them out with a jigsaw. Then I used a new product I got recently got it is Vintage wood Better with Age by Amy Howard. I found it's effects very similar to my homemade steel wood and vinegar solution (used on my camping crate here), but without the bad smell, so I would totally use it again! :)
Helmsman Spar Urethane Satin, sanding between coats with fine grit sandpaper. It is a good finish for protecting against moisture and temperature changes...aka-the bathroom.
But I am sure you get the idea...
I am sure you remember some of my plans I have shared at Build Something, which is a new site by Kreg. I have shared my Hanging Storage Shelf, X Arbor with Bench, and Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table. It is a great place to be a part of a building community and find amazing free plans!
