Perfect for tight spaces, hallways, entry ways. Easy to build.


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Middle and bottom shelves

Drill pocket holes along the length of 4 out of your 6 pcs of 1x3 @ 46 ". Glue and screw 3 of the pcs together. 2 that have the pocket holes and 1 that doesn't. Repeat for second shelf. Before finishing the shelves, drill pocket holes at each ends. 2 per 1x3 board. This will allow you to attach the shelves to the frame later on. Sand and finish to your liking


Top Shelf

Using both your 60" pcs of 1x6. Drill pocket holes in 1 of those pcs. Glue and screw both pcs together. Sand and finish to your liking.



Drill pocket holes in all of your 6" pcs of 2x3. Using screws and glue, attach the 6" pcs of 2x3 to the 2 pcs of 2x3 @ 39". One will be mounted flush at the top. The second at 20" from the bottom. The 3rd will be 3" from the bottom. Repeat for second leg.


Assemble Frame

Drill pocket holes in both of your 46" of 2x3. 2 in each ends. Mount both pcs flush to the top of the legs using screws and glue. Sand frame and paint to your liking.


Mount middle and Bottom shelves

Mount the shelves level with the top of the 6" pcs on the legs. Use the holes you drilled earlier to mount each shelf. Dont forget the glue.


Attach top shelf

Attach small L brackets to the frame. Be sure to use 1/2" screws to mount the underside. Apply glue to the top of the frame. This is necessary since those little screws won't hold forever by themselves.


Add brackets to fasten to wall

Because this is such a high and skinny table, it's good to add two small L brackets to the back of the top shelf to make sure it can be secured to a wall. Better safe than sorry.
