To ensure rigidity wooden benches for the bath, all the products are pulled together side racks, fixing them all the way to the ends of the longitudinal rails.It is necessary to use a PVA glue for wood.Thus, the rigid frame forms a set on the edge of the longitudinal rail with the side stand.This will stabilize the whole structure.
  2. upper board, serving seat by furniture dowels attached to the frame with adhesive.To store not be damaged by moving across the floor, the lower ends of the side pieces are fastened plastic glides.
  3. All elements of the bench covered moisture-resistant varnish is odorless, which has antiseptic properties.Thus, the design of the surface after the treatment becomes semi-neat appearance, without compromising the texture of the tree.


Walkthrough fabrication

In the case where the construction of benches, bench for the bath comes from the finished furniture boards, the manufacturing process is simplified as much as possible and the workpieces takes place in accordance with the existing drawing.Otherwise it is necessary to prepare the elements of their own.When cutting pieces should take into account allowances for finishing, which make up 20-30 mm on each side.

Manufacturing glued panels of the desired wood species should be carried out through the slats 20x10 mm in size, which is inserted into the longitudinal grooves between the boards.Such a bar can be done personally, but this would require special equipment, such as marking gauge.It can also be cut from a sheet of plywood, but ready to buy a much better option, especially because its value is insignificant.


process of construction of bath bench consists of the following stages:

  1. on a flat desktop surface is necessary to lay two parallel boards gap.Thereafter, they must be secured by means of clamps.In the future, the upper surface of the wooden boards are the basis of the router.
