Let's Get Started
To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.
Begin by cutting the interior box sides from the 1/2" plywood by cutting 3.5" strips across the entire sheet. From these strips you'll need to cut 18 pieces at 6.5" long and 18 pieces at 7.5" long. Measure and mark your cuts. Onto your plywood material. With your material clamped to your workbench, cut along your marked strips using a Dremel Saw-Max tool equipped with the Wood & Plastic SM500 blade. You'll love how quickly and easily you can make these cuts with this one-handed tool.
Using your Multi-Max tool & MM70W Sandpaper, smooth out any rough surface areas on the pieces you just cut. Build the 9 boxes for the inside of the board by gluing with wood glue. Allow the boxes to dry securely using clamps.
Lay out the boxes in a 3x3 tic-tac-toe pattern and measure the remaining side lengths. We measured our top length at 24" and our side height at 22-1/2". Your measurements may vary slightly depending on how your interior boxes set. Mark your required lines of cut in the 1/4" pine boards. Using your Dremel Saw-Max tool equipped with the same SM500 blade, cut along your marked lines. Set the outer box again with wood glue. We hammered finishing nails into all 4 corners for an extra-secure fit.
Finally, using your Saw-Max SM500 cut a bottom panel out of your 1/4" plywood and secure with screws around the outer frame. Be sure to leave your center divider boxes removable for painting and decorating. Our bottom panel measured to 24" by 24"
