Bookcase made of MDF planks, continues above the door to create height and spaciousness in the living room. The shelves are 32.0 cm high, the top shelves 25.0 cm.

DIY bookcase with MDF

Lying planks 30 mm thick, uprights 25 mm thick. The beams are also wider to create depth in the cabinet. After the half timber sawing for stability in the middle, the planks on the short side were sealed, sanded and painted and then assembled prefab. Pushed against the wall, anchored and varnished again. For extra strength on the sides, long screws are placed in the horizontal planks and a stripe mounting kit.

The dimensions of the project

At the widest part - above the door - 2.76 wide and 2.67 m high. That is wider and higher than the longest size planks, so ordered extra pieces to achieve the length. The planks were extended by means of dowels.
