It is essential to choose the right materials before starting the construction and the assembly of the bathroom shelves. As you will see in the project, you need to choose durable lumber with a nice appearance, such as pine, cedar or redwood. Make sure the components are in a good visual condition and choose professional tools when adjusting their size. Take accurate measurements and join the components with glue and screws.

Building Bathroom Shelves
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the sides for the bathroom shelves. As you can see in the image, we recommend you to build the legs out of 2×2 lumber and the supports out of 1×3 lumber.
Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and secure them to the legs by using 1 1/4″ screws. Make sure the corners are right angled and add glue to the joints.
The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the 1×3 supports to the legs, as described in the diagram. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and play the components on a level surface.
Top Tip: Place a 1/2″piece of plywood under the supports and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the legs. Leave no gaps between the components and add glue to the joints.
In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to mark the cut lines on the 3/4″ plywood sheets and to get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a cleaner.
Mark cut lines accurately, otherwise the components won’t fit one to another properly. Don’t make notches to the top shelf, in order to get a professional result.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: In order to protect the lumber from water damage, we recommend you to cover the components with several coats of paint. Place the wooden shelves in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
