here are some photos of my Radiator Cover project i have around 12 to complete and Medecine cabinets in the bathrooms. Now i have the Leigh FMT Pro this M&T work is all so much better . I will start the next one soon and plan to make accurate cut plans first this time as i have been building an cutting as i go and this just creates more expensive firewood. has any one got ideas on how to space the slats it always seems to casue me problems on the layout. The FMT kig is just wonderful to use and once you are set up it speeds through your M&T’s however this Oak is no easy wood to work with i wish my wife would let me use cherry etc. cutting the slats to exact same lenght is most important thing here.

cheers

I like the look of this. Very clever with the side shelves to the wall next to the radiator. Takes great advantage of what is usually wasted space.

Great looking job, will the heat from the radiator hurt the oak in time

Terrific work – those will surely add to the beauty of your house. I’m not sure if I understand what you were asking about how to lay out the slats. It looks like you did a good job with what you built so far – can you use the same spacing in your layout drawing?
