Project notes

• Ask your tim­ber mer­chant to cut the wood to size and to make the re­cesses for the hinges. • If you’re un­sure, get an elec­tri­cian or some­one with elec­tri­cal ex­pe­ri­ence to con­nect the wall socket. • Drill pi­lot holes where nec­es­sary. • Once the two side pan­els are at­tached to the front and back and each panel fits per­fectly, you will need to re­move one of them, so it’s not nec­es­sary to tighten the screws on both sides.
