We have been sitting at home in the living room looking at an ugly radiator for quite some time now. In this project I made a radiator housing from MDF boards cut to size.

DIY: Radiator conversion

I'm not much of a handyman so it didn't seem like a good idea to do the project off-the-cuff. I made sketches to scale in which all wooden parts were precisely drawn and calculated. I did this for several views to make sure all measurements were correct. Then I ordered all the supplies. When the wood was in I started gluing the MDF boards together with wood glue as described in the sketches. Then I primed the MDF 2x with edge sealer to paint according to. Finally the aluminum plates screwed in. (Do not tighten the screws too much because the aluminum and MDF must be able to work.) Looking back, this project was a very simple job?
