Description

We lack a place in the hallway to store hats and mittens and possibly also slippers.
First we measure the space next to the heating and under the mirrors and then we determine the number of boxes. That is the basis for a sketch and list of parts we need.
We have already made a bathroom cabinet once and used beech wood from OPMAATZAGEN.NL for the drawer fronts, which we think is very successful.

The next step is entering the parts on the site. That's simple, but at the end we think the price is very high. I have a circular saw and choose to divide the pieces into lengths myself (see sketch). We can order.
We use the option to pick it up nearby at Destil; saves on petrol and delivery costs!
We can collect the wood within two weeks.
There is a sticker on each plank with the size and name that I was able to fill in myself, so that I always know what I need for what I have and what parts I still need to cut it into.
We get to work with the corner clamps that I inherited from my father. And here it turns out, as later in the process, that it is nice to be able to work with 4 hands.
Once the skeleton is put together, we encounter a problem. Our original plan was to have the doors open downwards, but because the beech wood is 19 mm thick, you then hit the door below. Design error! Fortunately, we opted for piano hinges and these can also be mounted on the side. We only let the bottom two doors fold down, this gives a playful effect.
Put the feet underneath and insert magnetic closures and adjust them to the correct strength. And then paint, at least 3 layers. The wood colors beautifully!
The last step is deciding on the buttons. We haven't found anything we like anywhere. I like to take apart old appliances and I still have square rings that match the beech wood very nicely. Three on top of each other gives the right grip.
Cabinet installed and we are very satisfied.
