Construction drawing self-build chest of drawers: making nicole’s chest of drawers yourself
Commode Nicole: playful chest of drawers with rounded corners. Easily create this original chest of drawers yourself using our step-by-step plan with clear instruction drawings. The building plan describes two variants of this chest of drawers: one with wooden sliders for the drawers, and one with metal drawer guides. Opting for metal drawer guides has the advantage that your drawers run smoothly and neatly straight out, and you can take them off completely without fear of them falling out. But even with wooden gliders, the drawers run smoothly enough.
In the design of closet Nicole we wanted to give the construction a prominent place. You can see this by the special way in which the cabinet is “hung” between the side walls. Furthermore, the cabinet has playful rounded corners and stands firmly on rejuvenated (=bevelled) legs. These style features can be found in the other two furniture from children’s room series Nicole.
In addition, we took a number of specific things into account when designing:
We pay a lot of attention to keeping screw joints out of sight as much as possible. We also describe how you can make connections with dowels in some places, so that you do not need any screws at all. If you want to paint the furniture in an opaque color, it is sufficient to neatly conceal screw connections with the help of filler. Our furniture makers’ tips describe how to do this.
Then we always try to get the furniture from standard size sheet material as efficiently as possible. In the case of this chest of drawers, you can save money by making it entirely out of MDF. To get an idea of the availability and costs of sheet material, you can compare using the Internet.
Also for beginners
Finally, the design is tailored to the possibilities and limitations of the DIY and his/her tools. If you have a handsaw (sometimes jigsaw) and drill and can handle it, you can make all our furniture, so to speak. To cut the panels, we recommend the use of a circular saw. You can also have this done by your wood supplier. For round shapes, use a jigsaw. If you have professional tools, it only gets easier.
… zelf aanpassen
As you may have seen from the photos of made furniture, it is very easy to make changes to the dimensions and/or design yourself. The clear cut list and building drawings will automatically give you the confidence to do so.
The work drawings pack / the building drawing
The work drawings package consists of a nicely crafted brochure on A4 format. At the start you will find the list of necessities such as the wood (sheet material) and screws (size and number), glue and any other parts. It also shows what tools you need, and a cutting list with the sizes of the parts of the furniture to be cut.
Each piece of furniture includes a number of appropriate furniture making tips on material selection, sawing, screwing, adhesives, sanding and lacquering, etc. When doweling is mentioned as an alternative, an explanation is also included, enough to get started with self-confidence.
Finally, a step-by-step plan follows the manual for the assembly of the furniture, with clear drawings and clear explanations.
