This simple and casual storage unit offers a choice when it comes to stock selection. In the November 2007 “I Can Do That” column, we discussed an easy way to glue up panels using pocket screws (“Shaker Step Stool,” issue #165). So you might wish to follow the steps outlined there to make panels for the backs, top and shelf.

But, you can also buy already glued-up panels of pine at the home center for just a little more cash outlay, so that’s what I did for this project. My shopping trip for this corner shelf was quick and easy. I picked up two 24″ x 48″ pine panels, one pine 1″ x 8″ x 3′ for the sides, one pine 1″ x 2″ x 2′ for the rail, and two double hooks with a rubbed-nickel finish.
