Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we will be installing the bottom piece. I went ahead and set my sides up right so that I can tell how all this is going to be together. At the bottom of each side we have our cleats and our bottom piece is going to sit directly on top of those cleats. I'm going ahead and dry fit the project, meaning I'm not going to apply any glue or nails I'm just going to set it together first to make sure everything lines up. Everything seems to line up correctly, my next step is to apply some glue to my cleat and to my side. After that I'm going to set my bottom piece in place and pin nail it in place. Continue with the same procedure for the other side.
