For the back of the bin, lay two legs on the flat and attach six slats across them with 1 1/8-inch screws, placing the ends of the slats ¾ inch from the outside edges of the legs. Be sure to leave a ¾-inch gap between each slat as well. (Use a 1x4 turned on its edge as a spacer.) Make the sides the same way.
