Screw the inside of the two support bar.When choosing screws, consider the thickness of the bars and the board, so as not to spoil the front surface of the product.


Screw the support bars to the side walls.To do this, measure from the top of 7 cm boards (slats and mattress thickness of planting depth) and draw a line with a ruler.The support bars are screwed along the entire length of the side wall, retreating from the edges of 6 cm. The edges of the reference beam fasten two vertical segment bar 4 cm thick, so that the indentation to the edge of the board was strictly 2 cm.
