The Kit Build

Cut & remove parts A & B from the parts sheet as highlighted in the photo right.

 

Lightly sand any pips flush on the part edges using a sanding stick.

 

Using the engraved U shaped lines on part A as a guideline, glue & fix part B as shown in the photos right, on to part A.

 

Next cut & remove two of the thicker core block pieces from the second parts sheet. Lightly sand flush any pips on the part sides.

 

Cut & remove two part C’s from the parts sheet. These are the desk draw unit fronts. Lightly sand flush any pips from the part sides.

 

Cut & remove four part D’s from the parts sheet. These are the desk draw unit side panels. Lightly sand flush any pips from the part sides.

 

Glue & fix one part D on to the side of the thick core piece as shown in the photo right. Make sure that the end of part D is flush with the end of the thick core piece (as indicated by the orange X).

 

Now glue & fix the front panel on to the front of the core piece. Make sure that it sits flush with the side panel as indicated by the orange X in the photo right.

 

Now glue & fix the other side panel part D on to the thick core piece. As shown in the photo right. Repeat the process to make a second desk draw unit.

 

Cut & remove two part E’s from the parts sheet. These are the table legs. Again lightly sand flush any pips on the sides of the parts.

The Chairs

From the parts sheet, cut & remove parts G, H, I & J, as indicated in the photo right.

 

Glue & fit part G the chair shaft into the central hole on part H the legs. Allow time for the glue to set.

 

Glue & fit part I the chair seat on to part G the central shaft. Allow time for the glue to set.

 

Glue & fit part J the chair seat backrest on to the part I the chair seat. Allow time for the glue to set.

This concludes the assembly of the chairs.

 

You can add variety to some of the desks by only fitting one desk draw unit. In the photo right can be seen to desks, one with two draw units & the other with just one. 

 

To paint the desks & chairs, use acrylic paints. Here we’ve used Noch Paint pens which give a nice thin even coat of paint. Build up the layers of paint to achieve your desired requirements. 

This concludes this build & paint article.
