I’m trying to work out a few details for a future builtin project
Here’s how the project looks (see picture below of something
I saw on the web which is similar to what I’d like to make –
ofcourse don’t expect something of that level of finish from me;) ):
Rather than making cabinets, the builtin will be made
of plywood sides fixed at back by vertical battens
screwed to the wall.I’m thinking of having a few fixed shelves
to stiffen the construction. At the front,
at ceiling level there will be trim and a plinth (hope this is the right word)at floor level
(both assisting to keep the sides vertical and surface for door closing) I was thinking of
using pocket hole joinery to screw them to the sides from inside.
What I’m not sure about:
I think it would be good to have the ceiling trim and plinth
also secured to the ceiling and floor respectively (maybe not necessary ?)
In case they need to be secured, I was thinking of using glue
as there are hydronic heating/pipes in my floor so I cannot drill deep
(absolute max depth would be tile thickness eg 1cm for some stops – to avoid a catastrophy ;) .
I may be able to make some shallow holes in the painted concrete ceiling.
Any ideas / what type of glue /means of attaching?
I can’t see behind the doors in the picture but I guess a single sheet
of 20mm plywood will be solid enough for each divider/side ?
I’m not sure how many fixed shelves are needed – anyone with
experience can comment ?
