Three projects to restore order IN THE KITCHEN

Simplify and facilitate the daily work of the kitchen, you can use three simple projects with which you can do it for a couple of days off.

They allow you to at least partially solve the eternal problem of lack of storage space for dishes and other kitchen utensils. We have developed them in addition to one of our projects for the reconstruction of the kitchen, but you can quickly adjust any of them to your existing cupboards and drawers, following the instructions of the article. To work 1.Konets mess in a drawer for cutlery.

Sometimes kept in a drawer cutlery manages conveniently distribute the compartments purchased pan-organizer. But the organizer, you will design and manufacture ourselves, fit better than others, because they will take into account not only the internal dimensions of the drawer but also the size and the number of knives, forks, spoons and other items available in your kitchen.

Sizing. Measure the internal dimensions of the drawer. External dimensions of the organizer must be smaller than 6 mm, so it can be easily removed for cleaning.

Partitions help keep order. Frequently used tools are stored in the front, and those who want less, you can clean away.

Purchase a plastic organizer does not fit the size of the drawer and can accommodate its contents. Cutlery randomly kept in overcrowded cells.

Make ledges and walls high enough to them fits completely content without mixing. Then decide how many different types of forks, knives, spoons and other devices will be stored in a drawer. The length of the compartments must be greater than the longest tool approximately 1 to 2 mm. Fabricate organizer in size. Prepare a sufficient number of 12-mm plates to make them walls, front, rear and side walls. Give all the details of the same width and had a final length of the side walls. Then drank two transverse walls, a front and a rear wall, the length of which shall be 24 mm less than the width of the organizer. Make the required number of longitudinal walls separating different utensils from each other. For devices it easier to take out of the compartments, mark on the longitudinal walls with a caliper or flexible patterns scallops, placing them in the middle. Make cuts band saw and sand to the line marking.

Quick Tips! Process multiple parts. Instead notch cut out in each partition tape fasten several identical workpieces and the arc mark only on the top piece. Then saw out cuts in all the blanks at a time to get a few pieces of the same circuits.

Wipe collect personal organizer, setting into place the transverse and longitudinal partitions. If necessary, define the length of the additional partition in the front or the back of the organizer, saw out the details of the required size and double check their fit. Then finally grind all the walls with sandpaper number 180.

Working on a flat surface, glue the longitudinal walls and two transverse lock. To speed up the assembly clamps can be used instead of a pneumatic nail gun with a 25-millimeter nails or pins. These parts add side, front and rear walls and other partitions. After drying again, measure the width and length gluing to determine the size of the bottom, which you need to cut it out of the b-mm plywood. Stick it to the underside of the assembly, fixing clamps, and further secure the small-nails and pins. Then apply three coats of polyurethane colorless

2. Content of the lower cabinets becomes available.

If you easily get to the items stored at the back of the lower kitchen cabinet, it’s time to put things in order here. Made like a drawer tray with low bumpers allow easily removed from the distant corners of all that there is. Sizing. First of merte width of the opening in the front frame and reduce the size of 25 mm. Then measure the distance from the front of the frame to the back wall (usually about 580 mm). The length of the tray should be on 12-25 mm less than the depth of the cabinet. We made our trays with boards in height of 64 mm.

Fabricate drawers in size. Saw lateral side the desired length, and the front and rear bumpers must be 38 mm shorter than the overall width of the tray. The front cover to make b mm shorter than the width of the opening in the front frame.

Saw on the inner side of the lateral side slots. Then make a fold at the ends of the front and rear skirting. Saw all ledges dowels to insert the bottom. Measure the distance between the opposing tongue and drank the bottom parts respectively obtained size. Glue tray, and finally grind it with sandpaper № 180. toning stain the front cover and apply three coats of polyurethane varnish. (We applied lacquer sprays and polish each layer is dried, except for the last, sandpaper N ° 320.)

To the tray slides out. Select the longest rail that are appropriate to the depth of the kitchen cabinet. For full extension telescopic rails 550 mm long first set on the side walls of the enclosure mounting brackets extending from the front of the frame to the back wall. Read «The Council of Masters» at the end of the article, which provides additional guidance on the installation of retractable guides. Fasten the two pans of the rails on the sides of the disc tray flush with the lower edge. Place the tray in place and ensure its smooth running.

Then stick to the front rim of the tray double-sided tape and install wood trim with the same 3-mm gap on both sides and between the shelf and the front crossbar of the frame. Drill pilot holes inside the tray and fasten the cover screws.

3. How to organize storage trays and trays.

If every time, getting a baking tray, you do so carefully to avoid rattling sounds, the time has come to build a special pull-out storage, which will fit all your pans and trays. You can hide behind the door of a new or existing kitchen cabinet.

Sizing. Total width retractable structure must be 25 mm less than the width of the opening front frame and the height close to the height of the opening. We reduced the height of 100 mm, in order to save material. The length of storage of about 25 mm less than the depth of the cabinet.

Make a drawer storage for their size. Saw 19 mm plywood front and rear walls and okleyte their edges with wooden or plastic overlays. The dimensions of these components must match the width of the vault. Then subtract the total thickness of both walls of the total length of the store and drank six bars of this length of 19 mm boards. Add a plywood bottom whose length equals the length of the splines, and the width — the width of the front and rear walls.

Wipe gather design, connecting parts butt, drill and countersink the mounting holes in the front and rear walls. Glue strips and secure them with screws. Then stick to the bottom of the bottom bracket. Finally, add the bottom mounting plates and bars for the installation of retractable guides. To design put forward smoothly. Install the mounting brackets on the side walls of the cabinet, as described in the «Council of Masters», and with the help of screws secure the housing and pans of the sliding rails at the appropriate places.

We made our new cabinet door, but you can use an existing (only need to take off her hinges). By inserting into the body of the storage closet, secure with tape on the back wall of the spacer trim to the front wall with glued strips of double-sided tape slightly came forward for the facade frame. Align the front door in the opening frame and push it to the front wall. Drill holes for the screws on the inside, and finally fix the door. Then fill the storage trays and trays, having the shortest side, to make it easier to get them.

Expert’s Advice

For trays and boxes were put forward smoothly, drawer and storage tray required telescopic rails that are attached to the inside of the side walls of the kitchen cabinet. When on the front side has a facade frame housing parts are mounted on rails mounting plates.

For enclosure with one door had two strips of width 65 mm and thickness ostrogannoj them so that they are flush with the front of the frame struts, as shown in the right photo. Insert the strips into the cabinet, holding the bottom of the housing and attach with screws to the side walls.

■ Inside the cabinet with two doors separated by a B-pillar front frame, first and install mounting brackets, as in the closet with a door. Then saw out the two hardwood slats section 19×65 mm and a length equal to the distance from the B-pillar to the rear wall. Prepare as two spacers whose thickness is equal to the width of the center pillar, reduced by the total thickness of the two mounting plates (38 mm). The length of the spacers is equal to 65 mm.

Align the middle of the width of a spacer-pillar, drill and fasten with screws. Measure the distance from the spacer to the strap attached to the side wall, and set the second spacer at the rear of the cabinet at the same distance. Drill the mounting holes, attach the mounting brackets to the front and rear spacers.
