You know, there's nothing like an impending deadline to remind you of all the other projects that demand your attention. Inspired by Neon Pink Apokalypse's DIY Paint Station / Hobby Board, I have embraced my inner handy-man and have tried my hand at a set of shelves for my newly-recovered terrain cupboard.
|Originally the cupboard had a pair of these doors |
made of badly cut MDF (yes those are screws sticking out of the door)
Once the doors were removed, I was able to move onto the shelves, using 10mm MDF as the base. Originally intending for this to be be-all and end-all, I quickly realised my error in this thought pattern - I was using 10mm MDF. The stuff is so sensitive that it warps when you look at it funny. As a result, struts would need to be installed to ensure the shelves would retain their shape long-term. Measuring up some lengths of pine, I began the long and drawn out process of gluing and screwing the batons into place.
