Bedroom Cupboards (home job)

Post by Meccarroll » Thu Nov 24, 2016 7:10 pm

Don't think I've posted anything in this section before as I usually work on site and not much to post except mundane first/second fix work most of the time. Here is a set of basic bedroom cupboards I made under instruction from SWMBO.

All made from MRMDF, 18mm doors, carcass work and some shelving, 25mm for the frame and other shelving. Sprayed with A/C High build primer then A/C topcoat:

Thank's for looking.

Looks very good Mark. Did you do the spraying yourself - if so do you have a spray shop or just do it in a workshop?

Yes I did the spraying Steve, A/C it's the only spray paint that I have used on wood so far. No spray shop, just sealed up a large area with thin polythene sheeting, made a temporary stacking system and dismantled after I'd finished.

I like A/C because it's very resilient and lasts for years, but I'm thinking about had painting as it's quite in at the moment and may actually suite some items more than A/C. Only thing is I'm not sure if it lasts like A/C does.

Took a look over some of your work and I must say how nice and neat it all looks, I really liked the Oak bedroom furniture you made.

Thank you for comment Steve.

Lot's of brownie points to be had :D

I was going to build the cupboards lined with MFC as most of the chaps on here do but SHMBO wanted maximum storage (not lined). At first it seemed a good idea saving on materials and having the extra space but as a consequence the cupboards took longer to fit as I had to scribe everting in situ rather than fit to square boxes in the workshop.

I think lined cupboards can look neater and the extra cost of materials can be off set in the time saved fitting. Something I'm going to take into consideration in future.
