Glue and screw the sides of the bin to the inside edges of the back legs so that the legs form the back corners. To create the slide-in tracks for the front panels, attach the rails to the slats on the inside front edges of the side panels, flush with the ends of the slats. Glue and screw (with 2-inch screws) the remaining legs to the front edges of both sides to form the front corners. Slide the front panels into the tracks.
