Build the Frame
Construct the rest of frame for the storage compartment from more of the bamboo. You will need two sides, a middle piece, a top piece and shelves for the storage compartment. (We made our top piece a little wider so it would have a slight overhang.) Attach the sides and top together using wood glue and finishing nails. Then attach the middle piece.
Cut 1x1 material to make the cleats to hold up the bottom shelf of the storage compartment. Cut one piece for the back and two pieces for the sides. The front of the bottom shelf will rest on the face frame. If you're going to install inner shelves, cut three cleats for each of those shelves.
Attach the face piece to the frame. Lay the frame on its back and spread wood glue on the front of it then lay the face frame on top and nail it into place.
