4th Round all edges of the side boards (1), the back wall (2) and the cover plates now (3 and 4) from sandpaper. then screw the rear wall (2) behind the side parts. Then screw the narrow top plate (3) on the side parts (1) and on the rear wall, so that this outside flush (4 x 40 screws).

5th Screw the two side boards (5) exactly perpendicular to the side parts (1) of the underframe now, namely so that these start exactly where to stop the narrow top plate (3). Take an angle to help (4 x 40 screws).

6. Now screw the two boards (6) behind the vertical boards (5), so that they get up on the stand and lie sideways exactly half the vertical boards (5). Once you have rounded the edges with sandpaper, you can now screw the tongue-and-groove boards (7) from behind. To do this, on both sides of a 19 mm thick remnant into the fold: To get a uniform joint. Screw 5 boards (7) each with the spring down to (4 x 30 screws).

8th. Now fix the flap, as shown, using the hinges. Here now come not tongue and groove on each other, but tongue and groove. Use
Is 3.5 x 16 mm screws. At a distance of about 320 mm over the closed flap simply unscrew two tongue and groove boards (7)
with the spring to the top. Then screw the cover plate (4) laterally flush on the side parts (1).

9th Thus, the general purpose crates (12) can slide well, you glue from below each one 19 mm MDF board (9). To do this, the box upside down and just put glue on a surface, insert the MDF board and complain the whole thing with books or a toolbox. If you want to screw rollers under the crates, a glue the plate (9) not from the outside but from the inside, then you can secure the rollers from below 3.5 x 16 mm screws. then sand the surfaces of the boxes smooth and
round off the edges with 180-grit sandpaper. Then enter Genius PRO 2in1 paint on, let this dry and wear this for a sanding

Flap (7) is screwed, that this shuts well. Thus the flap remains open in the horizontal, drill a hole about 6 mm in the upper
Edge of the flap. This should be visible when folded. Then, pull the rope (16) through the hole and tie it on the front.
The other end secured to a hook (15), the screw you just above the flap in the vertical strut (6) from behind. Adjust the rope so that the open-ended flap is exactly horizontal.

11. As a simple curtain curtain can be used, or a curtain rod with a curtain. It's easiest if you have a piece of cloth (about 60 x 70 cm) staple from behind the top edge. For the two tieback sawing from each of a 50 mm (10) and a 160 mm long piece (11) of a roof batten. Round off the long piece (11) from the top edge and break the edges. screw
