71 wide x 35 deep x 70 high, this shelf will be used to put toys, bags, hats, amongst other things.
I am not planning to have drawers, but this could change!
These pictures show the first steps of cardboard furniture making:
- Cutting the front middle and back shapes
- Adding structural elements to the middle shape to strengthen the piece of furniture
- Gluing the front and back to the structural elements and now it starts to look like what I want.
Next week I'll add the dressing panels on the top, bottom and sides and the lid and I might even have time to paint it!
Enjoy the end of the week!
Wait till next week for the finishing touches: A whole lot of covering, protecting, sanding, filling, drying, sanding, filling, drying, sanding, painting, drying, painting, drying, varnishing, drying, varnishing, drying, varnishing, drying,......
Finishing touches really are what takes the longest.
