Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we would installing our shelves. First off we need to set our story pole up against our side and we need to place a piece of tape on our drill bit so we know when to stop so we don't go all the way through our project. Next we are going to place our story pole tight up against our project and we are going to drill through our guide holes until we reach the tape. We are going to continue this all the way around our project and that is going to give us the holes for our first shelf. We need to take our shelf pins and place those in there. You might need to tap them in just a little bit. After that we need to go ahead and set our shelf in place. I'm actually going to be installing the middle shelf and make sure it sits fully on those pins and it looks pretty nice it lines up really nicely with my permanent shelf. Go ahead and continue this for all of your other shelves. Now when I drilled my first set of holes I had 4 sections in here and they lined up with each of these. I also drilled holes to make it 3 sections encase you have a little bit taller book they have that option of the 3 sections. Inside here I went ahead and drilled and place my shelf inside in there and everything turned out pretty nice.
