Diagram A: This is a layout of a full sheet (4' x 8') x " Birch MDF plywood (you can use " Birch plywood, but the MDF seems to work best for me). This has all the cuts and you can get everything out of this sheet except the flooring, which I used " plywood for that (3 cut pieces see Diagram B for measurements). This cut pattern ensures that the grain of the wood is consistent throughout the project. You will also need some Birch Banding for the edges of the plywood. I also use 2x4s for corner supports (12) under the flooring, 4 of which I put levelers in so you can level the center if you put it on a hard surface. You will need to secure the top shelf, but I drilled holes for the other shelves so they can be adjustable, similar to a bookcase shelf. You will also need some carpet to cover the plywood floor. The Bag Props are cut out on a band saw or scroll saw to give the curves and the notch, which fit in the side pieces. I also used buttons to conceal the screws and I used biscuits to secure the top shelf to the shelve sides and back. I hope this will help, it is a fun project. Good Luck, let me know if you have any other questions.
