cool stand.. did the hardware store cut the plywood panels for you?
Yes, as we don't have a table saw we thought it would be much easier. Drew a scaled drawing of the board, cut the panel pieces out of a piece of paper and tried to figure out how it would be the most efficient.
AND I had to make sure the grain goes in the right direction.
You can see my drawing here.
(My husband just told me this is more like a sketch then a drawing...
I marked the cutting lines with arrows. Then I made an order for the cuttings, so when we were at Home Depot, I just told the associate what to do, which direction the next cut is, what the measurement is, and he cut it for me. It came out excellent. I had 14 cuts.
The front panel cuts: we cut those to size (lenght) at home with the circular saw (it fit just right) Cuts between cut# 10 and 11 helped us to make sure the doors will fit into the openings as the height of the doors were the same as the middle panels.
(I edited the picture in photobucket, but it is a pain, every time I put a text bubble on, I had to make 10 different changes, so I gave up and just used the pencil, sorry, it came out ugly but you guys got the idea
