The assembly is basically quick and intuitive: a wooden board 80 x 60 cm as basement of the structure, joint to other two smaller panels, through PlayWood connectors 90°. Doing so, you will obtain both the basement and the side walls of the rectangular structure. Above this structure, you have to fix the widest wooden panel: since this panel is larger than the structure below, it can be also used as storage for books and tools.
