|ELF kit for my mud room|
Those pieces of wood, plus a washing machine and a fridge are destined to become this....
|magical finish with wax|
The finished piece - one coat of wax applied with a cloth or a brush (I prefer cloth), let it dry and buff with soft cloth. Do more coats if you like.
|ready and waiting|
First make a box for the cupboard and then repeat ...... three times for the lower cupboards and twice for the wall cupboards
|The spare pieces are 'feet' and also act as plinth supports|
When you have made the boxes do a dry fit........ and discover they don't fit!! Entirely my fault I gave Elizabeth the wrong measurements!!! Gave her the front of the room measurements which differs by quite a lot from the back of the room. Talk about rookie error!!
|The aaaaarrrggghhh moment|
|saw, knife, scissors, whatever it takes|
Do a dry fit again and this time the cupboards can be glued together
....... and feet and plinth added
Ta dah - they fit
|Just need their doors|
The wall cupboards are made in a similar way
|make the basic boxes|
Add a trim to the bottom of the cupboard to conceal the lights I will be putting under them.
|three pieces cut ready to glue in place|
Add a trim to the cupboard top
|This will have an architrave added to this support piece|
All the basic cupboard pieces are assembled. Now for the job I don't especially like. They will all need painting before assembly.
|44 bits of wood|
