Please note: plans got submitted with steps missing. Until this message is gone, plan is incomplete. Will update soon. Sorry about that


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Assemble box

You will need your 2 pcs of 1x8 @ 46" and 2 pcs of 1x8 @ 24". Drill 4 pocket holes at each ends of your 24" pcs.


Assemble box 2

Attach your pcs of 24" to each ends of your 46" pcs. Put the pocket holes facing on the outside.


Arrow holder

Using your remaining pc of 1x4. Drill 1 1/4" holes across the board. Starting 2" in and keeping the holes 2" apart on center. Drill 2 pocket holes at each end.


Bottom arrow holder

Using a pc of 24" 1x4. Drill 2 pocket holes at each ends. Run a scrap pc of 24" of wood in the table saw at 3/4". Attach to the front of the 1x4 with brad nails and glue. Drill 1/2 holes every 2" starting at 2" from the edge.


Assemble back board.

For this step I ended up using whatever 24" pcs of 1x I could find around my shop. I've included the pcs I used in the material list. But feel free to do the same as long as your back board ends up at 44 3/8" in length. Drill pocket holes in each board and assemble together.


Add knobs

I found some regular wood cabinet knobs. I had to get a special screw to hold them in place. See picture. I have them at 6" from the top and at 16" from the bottom. Pre drill at those spots.


Mount top shelf

Using your pc of 1x10. Run it on the table saw at 8 1/4. Using brad nails and screws, attach to the top


Mount back board

Drill pocket holes in the back board to mount it to the box.


Mount arrow holder

Attach the 1x4, 16" up from the bottom, tight to the back.


Mount bottom arrow holder

Measure 3" from the bottom of your box and mount the holder using the pocket screw holes.


Shelf edge

Using a scrap pc of 24" 1x. Run it on a table saw at 3/4 ". Using brad nails and glue, mount it to the bottom front of the box.



For this build I burnt the wood with a torch. Please be careful if you attempt that. I used an Early American stain.
