Cut the side panels to fit tightly between the top and bottom pieces. Cut all the panels wide enough to create a 3/16 in. Lip around the front of the shelving unit. Adhere iron-on edge banding to these pieces.
Fasten the panels with flat head sheet metal screws after drilling countersink pilot holes through the unit. The unit’s frames are hollow so be careful not to punch through their thin faces when drilling the countersinks. Make sure the screw heads seat flush. Cut plywood to cover the bottom and sides inside the unit.
Step5: Don’t fasten these pieces with screws, instead go for a friction fit. Apply iron on edge banding to the exposed edges. Remove all the plywood parts to apply finish. Finish the legs too. Reinstall the panels and inserts tack the inserts with small nail or brads then attach the legs.
