  • Verticals length 2 m
  • Vertical depth 0.8 m
  • Shelf height 0.6 m
step 1

Saw the lengths to the appropriate sizes with the metal saw.

If you think an angle grinder will quicken the job…think again it causes the warping of the metal. Not advised!
step 2

Use the rubber hammer to join the vertical and horizontal tubing lengths to build the shelf.
