OK, this will be an easy one for those who do installations – would like to know how best
best to go about it. I want to make a builtin of this sort :
(see photos a little way down where a builtin is put together).
The inside part (shelves/verticals) of the builtin is one part and the sliding doors are then later
installed separately in front of the shelves/verticals. Rafix type hardware is used (still working
on a solution on the drilling ;) )
The outside vertical panels (next to the walls) are made of two parts – (a)the inner part to which
the shelves are connected and a section (b) which is some 30cm wide, 10cm protruding
in front of section (a) (used as both the surface for sliding doors to close on at each wall &
for scribing to the wall ) and the rest behind section (a).
I want to make section (b) out of hardwood – what is the best way to
secure (b) to (a) & fit/scribe ?
I was thinking of some sort of glue & screws combination (if hardwood 30cm wide, 10 protruding, then
the 20cm behind (a) screwed with screws alternating with a spacing of eg 10cm, every
30cm along the 2.5m height of the panel.
To do it this way, I would need to put together the builtin, scribe both side panels, disassemble
the outside, glue & screw and assemble again. Not sure if that is along the lines of the best solution.
The hardwood needs to be only a little more than 10cm wide (visible part), so another solution using even
less hardwood would also be appreciated.
