Step-by-Step DIY: Sideboard

From multi-material to one of a kind! This sideboard will amaze guests in your home two times over: firstly because it is a unique piece of design furniture – and secondly because you built it yourself with only one power tool!

A wide variety of materials are used for this project: MDF boards, acrylic glass, aluminium dibond, and tiles. The tool used is the PKS 16 Multi Mini Hand-Held Circular Saw. Due to its three different saw blades (wood, multi-material, diamond blade), this multi-talented tool can cut all common materials with a wide range of sawing applications.

Even beginners will be able to do a good job of this project. And who knows: maybe it will be the beginning of your personal designer career.

Step-by-Step DIY: TV wall unit for flat screen television

If you are going to install a brand new flat screen TV on your wall, you’ll want the surrounding decor to be up to scratch. Our self-assembly TV wall unit is the solution.

By the way: Assembly instructions are also available for a slimline TV console with open shelves and drawers to match this wall unit.

The following construction guide applies to 19-mm-thick medium-density fibreboard (MDF). You must adapt the list of materials accordingly if you opt for other materials or material with a different thickness. Ask your DIY store or carpenter to cut the required boards to size.

Our TV wall unit is mounted to the wall on special suspension rails. Spacers fitted at the bottom of the unit are used to adjust the distance between the unit and the wall. The suspension rails are fitted to the back of the rear panel and on the wall. Since the rails are always cut in pairs at a 45° angle from an MDF board, you will have matching pieces intersecting at angles, thus preventing the rear panel from slipping down or forwards.

We have fastened a reinforcement panel to the back of one of the rear panels, providing a secure backing for the flat screen TV, which, if large, may be very heavy. The cables are passed through to the back of the wall unit through the cutout, which is adjusted to size.

Step-by-Step DIY: Stylish perspex pendant light fixture

What’s the point of investing in a beautiful designer light fixture if you’re afraid to look at your bank balance afterwards? Our perspex pendant light offers an affordable and versatile alternative: suspended at head height, it looks great over the dining table. When suspended higher, possibly as part of a duo, it casts a wonderful glow in a long room such as a hall, for example. And don’t worry, you don’t need to be a professional to handle perspex!

The following construction guide applies to perspex that is 5 mm thick. You must adapt the list of materials accordingly if you opt for other materials or material with a different thickness.

Our light fixture is simply designed: Light bulbs are suspended separately from the ceiling by flexes and enclosed in a box made of two lateral bars at the top and at the bottom. The box itself is suspended from the ceiling by four wires, each of which is attached axially to the upper two lateral bars in the box. The glare shield rests loosely on the two lower lateral bars; it can be omitted if you want to suspend the light fixture so low over a table that you are unable to screen the lamp inside.
