You start with the “carpentry work”: stick the two 40 x 20 cm slabs onto one of the square slabs – then put the second square slab on top and glue it in the same way. Then attach pins on both sides to fix everything with a little bit of pressure. Then allow the crate to dry well overnight.
Measure the fronts of the drawers, as well as the upper and lower sections, and transfer the dimensions onto the backing paper of the adhesive film.
Cut out the individual parts, peel off the backing paper, and use the doctor blade to apply the adhesive foil to the wood panels.
Use the cordless screwdriver to attach the table legs to the bottom side of the crate with the screws.
For flawlessly beautiful results when gluing and pasting corners and edges, take a hair dryer and carefully heat the adhesive film to the lowest heat level – which makes it smoother.
