Step-by-step directions for the wall shelf

No. # 1: Lower wooden and sand

I needed to make use of a light-weight, pure wooden and selected the PEFC licensed spruce wooden. The boards I’ve within the dimensions (see above) sawed instantly out there – however you may in fact noticed the wooden at house too. After that, it’s essential to sand the sides a bit.

As a distinction to the untreated wooden, I opted for black varnish. It’s best to make use of an appropriate brush for portray, stir the paint effectively earlier than and twice rub the wooden strip for adequate opacity.

  • Picket dowels for ground and lengthy facet parts

  • Angle for entrance panel

No. # 3: Join ground and facet parts with picket dowels

To mount the wall shelf we begin with the ground and the facet components. In order that no screws are seen from the surface, they’re assembled with picket dowels. I’ve created a template for this, in order that the holes are drilled in the identical locations.

The picket dowels are later to stay to the brief outdoors of the underside plate and laterally on the lengthy sides. In order that the holes usually are not drilled too deep, I taped the drill with tape beforehand to see how far I can drill into the boards (ground board 1 cm, facet boards 2 cm). Now drill the holes, add one drop of the wooden glue after which the picket dowels. After 5 minutes, the glue needs to be dried.

Lastly, the black entrance panel is fastened with inside angles. For this function, I measured about 20 cm from the ground ingredient, drawn in and first fastened the angle contained in the longitudinal facet parts. Within the subsequent step works greatest in pairs: One locations the entrance panel within the center and the opposite screws the angles on the within.

repair the wall shelf on the wall?

It was vital to me which you could see no screws on the wall shelf on the finish. It’s purported to "float" on the wall. Due to this fact, I like to recommend you lastly to connect the wall shelf with so-called slotted hooks and dowels on the wall. Measure three drill holes on the similar distance and mount the slotted hooks within the wall. To switch the holes to the shelf on the similar distance, maintain it to the wall and mark with pencil the place to drill. Drill the holes from beneath on the again panel and dangle the wall shelf into the slot hooks. So the hook disappears virtually utterly within the wooden.

I'm actually enthusiastic about how one can construct a wall shelf your self with just some steps and supplies. Give it a attempt!
