Well... I drew the calculation for the 4x8 birch plywood. One sheet covers the whole thing.

The top was added first

Then the bottom:

As we don’t have compressor and nail gun, I used elbow grease and I loved doing it I loved nailing the plywood to the 2x4s. In Hungary, I have actually never seen a finishing nail punch and I just loved hiding the nails with the punch I used 3d 1 ¼ nails. A lot of them

Then I used wood filler to cover the tiny holes.

Then we added the back:

The sides:

And the front… that was the trickiest.

As originally we wanted to cut the holes out from a whole front sheet (we cut it up into top, bottom and 3 columns instead) there was nothing to hold the center piece… So we had to make something for it.

Finally it was done.

It has some kind of chicken pox… I guess… too many nails…
