Do you want to dress your walls with chic and discreet shelves? Do you need storage space, but your floors are already very crowded? Rogério Mendes, carpenter, meets your expectations by suggesting that you make a corner shelf without fittings.
Watch the video :Using the router To fix a corner shelf without revealing the fixing system, you can use simple wooden battens, which will act as a hook. To be able to fit the shelf into these battens, you must first make grooves in the shelf. To do this, use a router. First fix the shelf with a vice or a clamp. Trace the axis of the panel on the sides of it. Fit the guide on the router and adjust the depth (for a 30 mm panel, set the axis of the drill bit to 15 mm). When using a router, proceed in steps of 3 to 4 mm. Leave 5 cm of margin at each end of the panel, so that the wooden battens are perfectly invisible. After the first pass of the router, adjust it by adding 5 mm.Attach the shelf Attach the wooden cleats to the wall using wall plugs and screws. Place a trickle of white acrylic glue inside the grooves made with the router, then snap the shelf onto the cleats. Take a mallet to tap gently on the shelf to secure it perfectly. By following the advice of Rogério Mendes, you will obtain a beautiful shelf without fixings, reliable. Find the video Make a corner shelf without fixings on Minutefacile.com.
