Cut your boards to desired length. Mine where cut at 19.5", 17",14.5 ", 12", 9.5", 7", and 4.5".
Lay your boards out and cut another board for the "trunk".
After painting the boards, lay the "trunk" down on the boards to get the spacing you want.
Pre drill holes and screw the boards to the "trunk". Use 2 screws per board.
To make your base, cut (2) 3.5" boards and (1) 10" board. Use a Kreg jig to make pocket holes in the 3.5" boards. .Screw your 3.5" to the sides of the 10" boards.
Attach the base to your "trunk" with brad nails. Enjoy!
