Putting it all together...


Join the potting center modules together by drilling two 3 / 8-inch bolt holes through the legs and frames at each junction, starting with the bottom shelf, which rests on the bottom leg brace. This job will be easier if you temporarily clamp the frames or the roof supports into position while drilling. Measure carefully and check for square. Use non-corrosive 3/8-inch by 3-1/2-inch carriage bolts with washers and nuts.

Finishing   Lightly sand all cut ends. Apply a clear water repellent or stain containing a mildewcide and UV protector to extend the life of your project. Read important finishes descriptions on the back of this brochure.

tools you will need  Tape measure, carpenter's square, hammer, electric drill with Phillips head drill bit (for driving deck screws), twist drill bits, adjustable wrench or 3 / 8-inch socket, C-clamps and hand or power saw.
