Very easy

In a monumental building, the walls and windowsills are not always nicely level. In addition, these houses often contain wide radiators for which no kits are for sale in the range or praxis. That's why I drew something myself and had it cut to size.

Customized radiator conversion

1. Measures taken and checked 2 times 2 Drawing made. 3 Required panels entered. - top plate 12 mm (have 3 sides rounded) - side panels 18 mm - three uprights front 12 mm - front transverse planks Also ordered ventilation strips ordered - 2 for the front at the top - 1 for the top. After receipt: Make L profiles from the left and right sides with 2 front uprights. Then place these on the floor and start dividing the ventilation strips and the cross planks over the space from above. Secure them with glue and a few screws. After this you can put the frame in place and place the top shelf . Use a template (for sale at gamma) to mark the corners to be sawn. I also made a hole for the ventilation strip with a router.

The dimensions of the conversion

L 107,0 B 42,0 H 64,0 cm
