Finishing a project
« on: October 18, 2020, 10:04:48 PM »
My new shelving, replacing the sagging plastic ones, is good, but had one major problem.  Any folders I put on there could slide out through the end.  I temporarily laced string across the ends to keep them in place, but that was too much of a bodge, even for me  ;-)

But some 6mm MDF cut into strips and fastened with double-sided sticky tape has made a reasonably neat job of it.  The cut-to-size service at the DIY store is very useful.   I wouldn't trust the sticky for load bearing jobs, like hanging up a mirror, but for locational purposes its excellent.

Some wriggling on the carpet was needed to get the lower shelf lined out, but it wasn't too painful getting back up again afterwards..

Left click to see how it worked.  (A bit like bumpers on a baby's cot, but open at the front.
