Introduction: Headboard, Bedside Table or Shelving?
First time sorry for my english, im native spanish and take some help about google translate for some words. Its my first instructable.
Sometime i do small works, specially on rent apartments than the last tenants left broken. This time i make some works in a small apartment and owner reclaimed to me about bed position from an existing column and i said him about make a some headboard mixed with bedside table, i have an idea and green light to go ahead and make it.
Step 1: Take Measuraments
The more important thing for this proyect is make measuraments about the space i can use for work and sit down with a paper, pencil and calm, for develop some designs with exactly measuraments and make the exploded for go to the woodshop because i not have good tools for make the correct cuts and place for handle the entire tables. Apologies because i forgot to take a photos about the designs i make and other papers i used for decide the correct measuraments.
Only rest go to buy wood and return to apartment.
Step 2: Surprise!!
I`m really ungry because i left exactly measurements on paper and collect the pieces, later, when arrived at apartment and try to strat i discover that any parts are equal and need to sand all pieces to equalize, option was give all and drive 60km to return and demand news and drive another 60km, I can only resign and spend hours sanding and never return to Leroy Merlin to buy cutted wood.
Step 3: Start Assembling
Its easy to assembly it, maybe at first time until discover diferent surprises, i have the plans/instructions on a paper, its the wirst i made for buy cutted plywod pieces, the worst is remake the bad cuttings, its some to play with lego, pùt a wheels and try the movement.
Step 4: Start Making the Outside of the Headboard
I use the shelving part for test measurements and watch more surprises about the column and other places and i need to use router to make thiner some parts for left place for move the shelving free.
Step 5: Great Idea, Put Some Plugs for Smartphones and Laptops Charguers
Where i place the headboard, i need to pass a wire for put a plugs in the next room, I took the opportunity to put the power cord plugs there too.
Step 6: Making the Type Book Drawers and Finishing
I continue assembling taking care about the part is finished, put table and screw, put table and screw... only have difficults to install the hinges and need to play with screws and diferent postitions. I finally it with two hands of wood protector
Step 7: Decorating
It only remains clean and put some curtains that make play and stay beautiful, apartment ready for new tenants
