Over the last two days I have been building two fitted cupboards either side of a fireplace for a customer.
The brief was that they were to look traditional, meet her budget and be build in a relatively short time so that her office wasn't out of action for too long.
We settled on building the carcases out of 18mm MDF to keep costs down and have the book shelves in 25mm ply for strength.
|First unit nearly built|
|All the beading to hide the edges of the MDF and ply|
|Simple MDF doors that will look really effective when painted up|
|Lots of space in each unit|
|The book shelves are 300mm deep to accept to rows of small books|
|The finished units - difficult to get far enough back to take a good picture I'm afraid!|
It took me two very long days to fit these two cupboards but I'm really pleased with how they turned out in the end. I've asked the customer to send me a picture when they are painted and full of books so watch this space!
