Next, cut two pieces of cedar 9" x 14". Measure 9 1/2" from the bottom edge on each side and on the top edge 4 1/2" from the side. Scribe a line to connect the top and side points. Cut as shown, to nip off the peak created by the previous cut. Drill a 3/4" hole that is a 1/2" deep for the handle of the dowel. Then, drill six 1/2" holes that are a 1/2" deep for the rail dowels, as shown in the image. We made ours 2 1/2" from the bottom edge, 1 1/2" apart, and a 1/2" from the side edge.
