I am getting ready to start making furniture for my new house. One issue I have to deal with is I have Forced hot water baseboard heating, which I love for the most part.
Problem is in every room there is a radiator around the baseboard of every outside wall for the most part, say 2 inches deep and 6 inches tall.
I want to make shelves and other stuff that would normally be pushed up against the wall… i.e. in one room I want to make it “THE LIBRARY” say 3 walls of bookcases, but I can’t just ENCASE these heating units. I have to allow for air flow around these units.
I was thinking of making a lower FALSE unit where air could enter the bottom then come out say like at counter top hieght, or come in under the bottom then go around the false back and exit the top.
I hope I am making sense..
has anyone had experience with this issue?
