Today, many are faced with such a problem as a lack of funds. This problem is especially relevant when renovating and equipping a new apartment. Just imagine that you are buying an apartment in a new building, and suddenly the prices for building materials and furniture go up. This significantly hits the family budget. Today many people face this problem. Of course, you can save money on repairs or furniture. But, in this case, you must be careful, since the use of low-quality material may end up not the way you wanted it. In many cases, this leads to the need to re-implement a particular work using better materials. As a result, costs double or even more.
If saving on building materials is pointless, then with furniture this option can be considered. In this case, the best option would be to make furniture with your own hands. This allows significant savings, since the money will be spent exclusively on the material, and not on labor costs for the production or assembly of furniture. Of course, making furniture is a rather complicated process, in which it is necessary to take into account some nuances.
If you decide to make your own furniture for your new home, then it is better to start with something simple. In this case, the best start will be to make a bedside table with your own hands, which has a very simple design, which will allow even a non-professional furniture maker to complete it.
So how to make your own bedside table? Creating a bedside table with your own hands, and other furniture, must begin with determining its design features. To do this, you need to take a piece of paper and depict the future element of the interior on it. Of course, before that, it is better to see a photo of the bedside tables with your own hands. If you have a computer, then you can create a sketch of a bedside table made of wood with your own hands using programs that professional furniture manufacturers use in their work. The main thing here is to accurately determine the size of the bedside table with your own hands. In order to facilitate the process of making a bedside table, each of its elements must be separately depicted with exact dimensions. Drawings of the bedside table with your own hands will allow you to quickly and easily make blanks.
As for the blanks, they can be ordered at the carpentry workshop, where professionals on machine tools will quickly resolve this issue. In this case, it is worth paying attention to the edge that is applied to the end of the boards. For such an application, you will have to pay a rather large amount separately, especially when you consider the number of blanks. In order to save on this, you can independently carry out this process using a common household appliance - an iron. You just need to purchase such a tape and fix it on the ends of the blanks under heat treatment.
Also, a do-it-yourself cabinet can be made from materials that simply lie idle and take up space for nothing. So, for example, a do-it-yourself chipboard cabinet can be the best solution for you.
So, if a do-it-yourself bedside table is made from scrap wood, then its blanks will need to be processed. First of all, the blanks are cut according to the dimensions that were determined during the sketching. To do this, it is better to first make a bedside table out of cardboard with your own hands, which will allow you to use it as a stencil. After they are ready, they must be processed with a grinder. This will add beauty and smoothness to the surface. Also, the details will need to be treated with stain, which will protect them from negative environmental factors and give a beautiful shade.
After that, all parts of the product can be assembled into one structure. Often, glue and self-tapping screws are used to fasten wooden elements. If the manufacture of a bedside table with your own hands is carried out using material from a workshop, then you can use hex bolts, which are widely used in the production of modern furniture. In order to use such a mount, it is necessary to make holes of the appropriate diameter. At the final stage, the fittings are installed and the edges are glued.
A few tips from professionals
1. In the process of manufacturing blanks, it is necessary to accurately maintain the dimensions that were determined during the design of the furniture. A deviation of a couple of millimeters can nullify all the work. As a result, it will be almost impossible to assemble a bedside table with your own hands. This is especially true for a corner bedside table with your own hands.
2. Cutting wood must be done carefully and slowly. This will allow for a quality cut. This is especially true when sawing with an electric jigsaw.
3. For the manufacture of furniture, it is worth using quality material. If appearance plays an important role, then you should choose the classic version of the material - chipboard with a laminated coating. Of course, if it is possible to make solid wood furniture, then you should use this particular option. Do-it-yourself wooden bedside tables have many advantages.
4. To create a beautiful appearance of the bedside table, you should use high-quality fittings. Cheap fittings can completely ruin the appearance of the furniture, which will completely negate your efforts. As for quality, special attention should be paid here to curtains and drawer guides. Decorating the bedside table with your own hands depends on these elements.
5. For boxes it is better to use ball guides, which do not make noise during operation. Such structures are distinguished not only by their silent operation, but also by their durability. In the bedside tables on the balcony with your own hands, you can also use ordinary roller ones, since the noise during their operation will be insignificant.
6. In the process of pasting the edge, it is worth using a piece of paper, which is placed between the iron and the material. This will allow you to properly glue the edge and avoid damage to it while working with the iron. If we are talking about bedside tables in the bathroom with your own hands, then you need to approach the pasting of the edge very carefully, since moisture can break the structure of the material.
Everyone can make a bedside table with their own hands. Do-it-yourself kitchen cabinets are made using the same technology. The difference is only in the size and number of drawers and compartments. As for the technology, it is the same everywhere, which cannot be said about the do-it-yourself TV bedside table. If you like to watch movies often on your DVD player and you have a lot of discs in your house, then a do-it-yourself TV stand is a must. In it you can install not only a video player, but also stack discs and magazines.
A TV bedside table can be bought ready-made, or you can make it yourself. The advantage of the second option is that you can create nightstands of such a design that you just want. You can also make a do-it-yourself folding table under the aquarium. In order to make a TV stand with your own hands, you will need:
1. Wood. In this case, laminated chipboard will be the best option.
2. Joiner's glue PVA for better fixing of workpieces.
3. Glass. This is if you want to make glass shelves.
4. Fasteners, wheels.
So, how to make a do-it-yourself cabinet? To make a do-it-yourself cabinet from wood, it is best to use laminated chipboard, the thickness of which should be at least 16 mm. As with a do-it-yourself aquarium bedside table, making furniture must begin with drawing up a sketch. The design of the bedside table must be complex, as it is often installed in the living room. With the right approach, you can make furniture that will delight not only your household, but also your guests. In this case, it is better to use designs with rounded corners, which will give the product a modernity and elegance. Such a do-it-yourself nightstand decor will set it apart from the rest of the interior items.
The advantage of using laminated chipboard is that you can save time on making a bedside table for an aquarium with your own hands or under a TV, since there is no need for processing and polishing the surface. So, do-it-yourself drawings of the TV stand and its individual parts are ready. Now you can proceed to the direct manufacture of blanks. When dimensioning the material, you must adhere to the exact dimensions.
During the cutting process, the hacksaw blade should not go beyond the mark line. In order to make an even cut, it is better to use an electric jigsaw. In this case, the movements should be smooth. If you push the tool with great force, it can lead to a violation of the integrity of the chipboard top coating.
When the blanks are ready, you can start drilling holes for fasteners and furniture fittings. If there are shelves in the cabinet with your own hands, then it is better to use modern "tablet" holders. Attaching such elements is quite simple. It is only necessary to make a hole with a small diameter and insert a holder made in the form of a capsule with a stop in the middle. Before folding the bedside table, all holes must be cleaned of chips.
After everything is prepared, you can start folding the aquarium cabinet with your own hands. When fastening structural elements, it is worth using PVA glue. Adding a little glue to the holes for the fasteners will improve their hold and make the connection stronger and more secure. After the structure is ready, the edging must be glued to the ends of the chipboard. Iron is still used here. In this case, it is necessary to remember to use a piece of paper, which will protect the surface of the edging tape from the hot soleplate of the iron.
The production of the bedside table ends with the installation of shelves. A good option for a TV bedside table will be glass shelves, which will add elegance to the design. If desired, a do-it-yourself stand for an aquarium or under a TV can be installed on wheels, which will allow it to be moved around the room if the need arises.
In order to create a modern nightstand that will not differ in any way from the models in the store, it is necessary to use complex designs. A blank bedside table with several drawers will not be the best option here. To improve the appearance of the product, it is worth using small structures above the bedside table cover. So, you can make one niche under the TV, in which you can install a video player.
The main thing to remember is that the presence of such a complex design will make the product a real work of art, from which all your guests will be delighted. Particular attention should be paid here to the use of modern materials. Glass and metal will add style and beauty to the product. Correctly prepared drawings of a stand for an aquarium with your own hands or under TV will allow you to create furniture of any configuration.
You can also make furniture for any room with your own hands. A do-it-yourself shoe cabinet, a do-it-yourself sink cabinet, a do-it-yourself bathroom cabinet, and much more will significantly save money on arranging a new apartment. If you do not know how to make a bedside table under the sink or in the hallway, then you can watch videos on the Internet. Thus, you can learn the basics of creating a particular furniture.
