Introduction: How to Make a Corner Christmas Tree Shelf

关于:我喜欢重新制作和恢复旧家具,并制作每天都没有看到的木工项目。我用木材制作我的大部分项目,即被回收,回收和喜欢重新培养和休息......

I try and make something new for my home every Christmas. This year I wanted to make a shelf that would fit into the corner of my room and still pass as a Christmas tree. And after Christmas it could stay where it was I could just decorate it in another way. It can become a thanksgiving, fall or even a Halloween shelf you just change the decor to suit the occasion. I made thisChristmas tree shelflast year that can hang on a wall or sit on a table, which is a great idea for people with limited space at home.

Step 1: Cut the Frame

我无法根据一个计划建立项目,所以我沿着我走了起来,所以如果对你来说似乎很奇怪,那就是为什么。开始你需要一大块木头或胶合板。我使用formply,因为它是免费的,这是我家里的东西。如果要复制此架子,则上面的图像上的所有尺寸都在。将画家磁带对角线添加到木材上,这用作切割线,防止木材拆分。

Step 2: Measure the Position of the Shelves

Lay the 2 halves side by side and measure where you want to place the shelves. Draw a pencil line across both shelves so you know the shelves are going to be straight. Using scraps of plywood cut stripes of wood, these will be your shelf supports. I left a gap at the front so the support is not so obvious once assembled. Next, glue the supports to the sides using the pencil line as a guide. I used a nail gun to secure the glued supports so I did not have to wait for the glue to dry. Cut a hole in the gap below the first shelf at the bottom, this is to add Christmas lights. If you don't have a hole saw, use a jigsaw to cut out a small square. The idea is that the plugs are hidden under the bottom shelf.

Step 3: Join the Sides With Brackets

如果您没有平方尺,请使用大型方形尺或房屋的角落。将两侧的平方向上升起并为架子下方的支架钻孔钻孔,以隐藏螺栓。将螺栓从前面放入前面并用坚果将它们固定在括号中。这些将在后来涂上,所以他们atre是如此明显。

Step 4: Making the Shelves

To make the shelves, I cut squares from plywood. Test the squares for a good fitting by putting them on the shelf supports. Because the shelf is 90 degrees and so are the squares they should fit. Using a handy wooden compass that I made, state of the art I know. Draw a pencil line to round off the shelves. I am not very accurate cutting curves with a jigsaw so I always leave 2mm excess wood. The excess is then removed with a benchtop sander using the line as a guide. Test the shelves again for a good fit before glueing them in place. Please ignore the mess in my workshop, it is really organised chaos.

Step 5: Paint the Shelf

It will be a lot quicker to paint the shelf before assembly. Using a paint roller I added one coat of primer and 2 coats of white acrylic paint to all the wood. Once dry the shelf was glued together using wood glue.

第6步:装饰架子

Add your Christmas lights and decorations. I used double-sided tape to add Christmas lights to the outside of the shelf, and decorated the shelves.

    我以为我失去了这一点,我在一年中看到了这一点,并将为我的妻子为圣诞节来制作它的圣诞节村庄。唉,我六月失去了达林的妻子,但我得到了这些材料,这秋天我计划仍然在荣誉中,并试图努力献给她的奉献精神。我现在得到了它,所以我不会再失去这一点。好点子!

    I would gladly trade Wifey's OCD decorations for this elegant corner shelf. It is usually somewhere around June that I finally get all our decorations back up into the attic.

    What a great idea! Perfect for a small apartment or bathroom. I wonder if you put a hinge on the back if that would allow you to store if you don't want to keep it up year round.

    Thank you so much. I was going to use a hinge, but it would only work if I put it on the front. The angle at the back would not allow for the hinge to close flat. Because I wanted mine to be up all year I thought it would be an eyesore. But If it is just for Christmas I would think you could easily hide the hinges with some Christmas decorations.
