Working on the top edge of the side assembly, drill a small pilot hole 1/8" from each corner. Run a bead of craft glue along the top edge of the side assembly. Drive a small finishing nail through each corner of the base from the top, stopping just as you come through tho wood. Seat the base on the side assembly and carefully continue to drive the nails through the side corners. Gently countersink the nails. Be careful not to come through the front of the side assemb.y.
