I just downloaded the exploded view and notice that the overall height of the case is 43 3/4". If the side panels are to be 471/4' something doesn't add up. Please let me know what the dimensions are to be. Thanks, Reid
 
Drill Shelf-Pin Holes Step 1

Cut and trim the sides (A) to size. Clamp a scrap of perforated hardboard (pegboard) to the sides as a template to lay out and mark locations for shelf-pin holes as shown in the exploded view drawing.

Step 2

With sides on a bench, drill 1/4-inch holes 3/8 inch deep at shelf-pin hole locations. Use an electric drill with a brad-point bit and a drill stop. Check the depth frequently; do not overdrill.

Refresher Course: Support Plywood for Ripping

To safely rip plywood with a portable circular saw, use 2x4 supports laying on sawhorses and a kerf splitter to prevent kickback.

No Drill Stop? Try Tape.

You can control the depth of the holes you drill without a drill stop by wrapping tape around the bit as a visible guide to the proper depth.
