Use a jigsaw to cut the inner and outer brackets as shown in the drawing.

Note that one outer bracket per arbor half is not notched, but instead it butts against and overlaps the end of the ledger board so that there is no exposed end grain.

Notch the main supports to a depth of 3/4 in. by ganging them together and running them repeatedly through a table saw.

Use the saw’s miter gauge to support the stock. (If you don’t have a table saw, use a circular saw to create the notches.)
