  1. Measure width and height of felt pockets

  2. Cut 8 lengths of 2x1 timber at half the width of pockets. These will be tops and bottoms. Cut 4 lengths at twice the height of pockets.



  3. Pre-drill 2 holes in top and bottom of the long lengths.

  4. Screw top pieces to side lengths

  5. Screw another of these pieces just below, turned 90° to keep the frame square

  6. Divide frame height into approx 15cm sections and cut the required timber of cross pieces. In our example (frame size 2m x 50cm) we needed a cross bars plus 4 for the tops and bottoms. 13 in total.
