    Also racks from chipboard or chipboard may differ from each other in shape.

    • Direct models. These options are considered the most common. At the same time, they can be with different dimensions and with different number of shelves. All modules are mounted on the same level. Similar structures can be suitable for more spacious premises. They can also be built in niche.

    How to do?

    Racks from chipboard can be done without difficulty doing with their own hands at home.

    • To begin with drawing a drawing of the future product. It should be displayed the appearance of the future design and specify all the sizes.

    • When the scheme is compiled, it will be necessary to purchase all the materials necessary for the manufacture. Most 6 sheets of chipboard or LDSP, their size should be the same. With dimensions should be decided immediately, they will depend on which items will be used for which items will be used, and where it will be placed

    • You also need to pre-prepare parts that will be placed in a vertical position when installing. Total will need 15 such products. Most often their size is much less compared to the dimensions of horizontal components.

    • In addition to the materials, it should also be purchased in advance and the necessary devices, including fasteners. Confirmates are often in the role of them. It is also recommended to immediately buy a special melamine edge impregnated with adhesive composition.

    Now you can proceed to the manufacturing process itself.

    • To begin with, the wooden blanks are neatly glued to the edge. You can do this with the help of an ordinary preheated iron. The edge is applied to the end part of the design and clamp the instrument. After that, on the surface you need to spend a soft cloth several times. Do it in order to make sure that the material most tightly fixed on the workpiece.

    • Protruding surplus carefully trimmed so that they do not spoil the appearance. Then everything is processed using fine-grained emery paper.

    • At the final stage, you can start assembling the rack. In wooden planes, through-type holes are formed, their diameter should be 8 mm. In the end departments also make holes, but their diameter should reach 5 mm.

    They will act as seating for confirmates.

    If you want a unusual and stylish rack as a result of work, then the vertical planes should be combined with each other in chaotic order. But at the same time it will be necessary to ensure that the holes for the fasteners coincide. It is also worth controlling that the structure is sufficiently stable.


    In the manufacture of such storage systems, you need to remember some important recommendations.

    • If the design will have an impressive height, then you should take care of creating a more reliable and strong foundation. At the beginning of work should be labeled on the wall. As carrying supporting structures, it is best to use simple wooden bars, of which you can collect quite a solid foundation. If the construction in the end will have a height before the ceiling, then it will be necessary to fix the base immediately and to the floor, and to the ceiling coating.

    • To ensure the maximum stability of the design, the base can be fixed on the wall coating. At the same time, it will be necessary to ensure that the supporting supports are placed in a vertical position. Transverse side disclosures will help ensure the reliability of the finished facility will make it the most rigid.

    • For the base, you can use almost any kind of bars. Products with rectangular, square type of cross section.

    • The frame part can be fixed using confirmates, screws, but the strengthening of the angular parts is best produced using special planks.

    • If desired, the finished design can be covered with paint. For these purposes, it is preferable to use acrylic compositions that will quickly dry. For better preservation after drying, the rack is additionally covered with acrylic protective varnish. You can also arrange an interesting decoupage on the surface or “ACCEPT” coating with the help of a cracker effect.
