Assembly Instructions (Typically 20 minutes)
We have made these instructions as simple as possible with the confidence that you'll print this
page and see how easy this sturdy bench is to put together.
You will need the following tools:
- Drill motor with Phillips head Bit.
- A 9/16 Socket and Ratchet.
- 6-12" Ratchet Clamp (included with your purchase).
Remove contents carefully from shipping carton and inspect each piece for damages.
Take an inventory of all listed items. Contact us immediately, should something be missing though highly
Organize your parts on a flat level surface (Garage or Basement floor).
Place the Bench top bottom up.
As shown above: Each leg is labeled for upside down installation. Take one leg at a time and place
in each corner. All Counter sink holes should be facing the rear of the bench. Using the C - Clamp,
secure the position of the leg. Place Lag Bolts with Washers in each hole and HAND install with your
ratchet and 9/16 socket. Do not tighten all the way until the bottom shelf is added in the next step.
Caution: Do not use a drill motor! This can be too powerful and crack portions of the wood. Continue
the same method on all four legs.
Turn the Bench "right side up". Since the Bench is heavy, it will be helpful to have someone assist
you. Be Safe!.
Take the bottom shelf unit and line the Back of the unit on the floor to the front legs of the bench.
Lift the bench front and nudge the front legs into the side slots. Let the bench down and slide the
shelf back toward the rear legs. While the legs are loose they should go in smoothly. It will appear
that there is too much play 1/4 -3/4" . That tolerance is expected as the leg / shelf will strut for
Gently lift each corner and measure 4" or the level you would wish to place the shelf, Place 2 1/2
"lag screws at each counter sink hole and using your drill motor install each screw. Do not over
tighten. You may need to gently nudge the legs into the shelf unit corner since the legs are loose.
On Recessed shelves, the two pilot holes need to line up to the rear half of the front leg.
Step 4: Place the Three Compartment Side Pocket anywhere it is convenient for you. You may wish
to place the bench in or near it's final destination before determining placement. There are 3 - 2
1/2" screws provided. Using a drill motor position screws on angle and drill in place.
