    2. Lay the hexagon down and attach the walls to each side by applying wood glue then nailing through the side into the hexagon and on the seam of each corner.

    3. You are going to create holes in four of the six walls that are parallel to each other, the two walls without holes are the top and bottom. In the center of each of the four sides trace the circle on.

    4. Use a ½” drill bit to make a hole on the inside of each circle.

    5. Use the jigsaw to cut the circles out.

    6. Sand down any rough edges.

    7. Stain or paint as desired.

    8. Add in carpet squares, glue down.

    9. Add the french cleat to the back according to the directions.
