Adding the lop Bottom and Middle Shelf

  1. The top (G), bottom (H), and middle shelf (I) are identical. Cut each from 3/4-inch-thick plywood according to the diagram shown in Figure 5. Note that a 1-7/8-inch square must be cut from each of the four corners to accommodate the inner vertical supports (B).
  2. Stand the armoire (well, half-assembled armoire) right side up. Fit the bottom (H) over the lowest inner 2x2 horizontal supports. Glue and screw it to all four of the horizontal supports using 1-1/4-inch-long screws spaced approximately 6 inches apart. Take extra care to make certain that the front horizontal supports (F) are flush with the exposed edges of the bottom (H), as shown in Figure 6.
  3. Repeat the process to add the middle shelf (I), fitting it onto the horizontal supports that are 29-1/4 inches from the top. Again make sure that the front edges are flush, as you did for the bottom (H).
  4. The top (G) is attached to the uppermost horizontal supports, but it is attached on the lower face of those supports so that the horizontal supports will not be visible inside the finished armoire. Attach it in the same manner used for the shelf (I), making sure that the front edges are flush.
