I bought the box of wire cubes at Target. I bought a pack of 100 cable ties for around 3.49, too. Each box has 23 square panels and 24 connectors. First, you make two cubes with the fronts missing and attach the corners with the connectors included in the box. The first time I did this I didn't make sure all the sides were facing the right direction. There is a top and a bottom to each square panel. (I'm very particular about things lining up) As you can see from the picture, I have 8 shelves inside each cube. All I did was to, again make sure things are facing the right direction, put a panel in and tie wrap each corner to the "cube frame". I used a total of 4 cable ties for each shelf. two on the front left and right and two in the back on the far right and left. The only thing tricky about it is to not tighten up the cable ties all the way until you have all the shelves in. I will try to take a picture tonight and show a close up in detail. Now last week I bought a new box of cubes and I was short 2 panels. I don't know if I got lucky last year and had an extra 2 or the boxes now contain 2 less panels. Does this make sense? I could only make 7 shelves per cube when I assembled a set this week. I don't know why that happened. I think I counted them about 20 times just to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. No, I don't have OCD. At least not formally diagnosed by a professional(lol) If you look really close to the set in my picture you'll notice that I haven't yet trimmed the cable ties. I should have cut them down. Just use heavy duty scissors to do this. Also make sure you attach a back to the cubes, you'll need it to attach the back cable ties. I hope this helps you. Please feel free to ask any more questions.
