Production of details

Manufacturing of parts for any furniture design - a rather complicated and time-consuming process that requires not only a high accuracy, some skill and increased accuracy, but also the availability of specialized tools for working on workpieces.

Illustration Brief description of the operation being performed
vm 1 first step is marking chipboard panels with the transfer to them the size of the project drawing and tracing the lines of cuts.
Further, all parts of the cabinet are cut.It should be noted that if the cut will be made manual hacksaw, it will require a lot of time and effort.Therefore, faster and more accurate work will, if it will carry out with the help of electric circular saw, or, in extreme cases, jigsaw.
To obtain a clean edge, burr, cut must be made with a fine-toothed saw.In addition, on the edge of the cut line is recommended to stick masking tape, which will save from the edge of the laminate chips.
If the edges still have turned out not absolutely equal, they need to trim a file, rasp or plane.
If you want to get a perfectly smooth edge detail or model has rounded corners and other straight-configuration, it is better to address to the workshop, where there is special equipment, which is produced accurate to the millimeter, cut all forms.
BM2 If the furniture is made of panels resulting from disassembly of the old walls, and the height of the panels is not enough to build conceived project, they will have to increase.
dv3 Connecting the individual sheets can be done in many ways - a "tongue and groove", using dowels, or with a special docking strap, which is set to glue the two parts of the panel on both sides.
Last connection method - the most simple and accessible, even to novice master.
The radii of curvature This cabinet model designed shelves with rounded corner.To
drank it nicely, you need to use the building or improvised compasses hold straight-cut line.
