- 1” x 4” straight cut to:
- 46” length for the vertical support
- 6” length for the trunk
- Desired length for shelves
- Circular saw
- Nail gun with ¾” brad nails or drill with ¾” screws
- Wooden star or jigsaw and star template to cut your own
- Angle finder
- Tape measure
- Desired hanging hardware
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Sanding block
- Cut the wood to size. The vertical support, shelves and trunk are straight cuts. For the tiers, use an angle finder to create a line from the length measurement inward on each side that is angled at 37-degrees, mark and cut. Cut some straight pieces to desired size for the shelves.
- If you are cutting your own star, do so now. Trace a star template onto the wood and use a jigsaw to cut out.
- Sand any rough edges lightly.
- Place the trunk then the two pieces of each tier together in order from the bottom tier upward face down on your workspace then place the vertical support on top.
- Space the tiers using the shelves, wedge them in between each tier to make sure they will fit snugly.
- Attach the tiers and trunk to the vertical support by screwing or nailing through the back of it in multiple places on each piece.
- Flip the tree over and hot glue the star to the top. PRO TIP: you can screw or nail in place if desired as well.
- Hang as desired, insert the shelves, decorate and enjoy!
