Apply glue to the side edges of the top piece (fitted with the glass rack) and the bottom shelf, and on top of the cleats, then sandwich the top and the bottom shelf between the sides at your lines. Use a pneumatic nailer to drive 1½-inch nails through the sides and into the edges of the top and shelf. Nail through the bottom shelf and into the cleats. Use the nailer and 1½-inch brads to attach the back at the edges of the hutch.
