First find a nice design for the radiator in the hall. Then determine which dimensions should be chosen for this project. At first I wanted to make the “bars” 4 cm wide, but when ordering it turned out that the minimum width had to be 5 cm. The design therefore had to be adjusted. All necessary parts were placed in the system and ordered. Chosen for 18 mm MDF blank.

Radiator conversion with MDF

The package of wood parts was well packaged and looked perfectly sawn. On the internet I saw how you can simply screw wood parts together using the CanDo screw connector. Bought this and it turned out to be a perfect option for making invisible corner connections. Parts in line with each other could also be screwed this way. Perfect with some glue in between. Now first sand and paint the radiator casing. But the paint shop is closed due to Corona. So just a little patience.

It was a fun job and especially easy because of the parts that were perfectly cut to size. I'm already thinking about designing a cabinet for behind the bed with a TV recessed into it....
