Make a desk binder

Most of our office filing cabinet is made of 16 mm thick plywood, only the spokes and back are plywood only 5 mm thick. The general structure is extremely simple, since it is a vertical chest with a number of spokes that are placed
in grooves on the inside of the sides.

Necessary material

  • Metre
  • Clamp
  • square
  • Circular saw
  • Jigsaw
  • Handsaw
  • Hammer
  • Guillaume
  • Hand plane
  • Plate

Steps

  1. Realization of the vertical chest
  2. Manufacture of shelves
  3. Binder finishes

Realization of the vertical chest

1. Practice inside each of the elements on the side, at the top and at the bottom, a rebate with guillaume, of a width equal to the thickness of the panel. This rabbet will allow a mid-wood assembly. Material list.

2. Carefully trace the location of the shelves. Be sure to respect the same space between each stroke. The gap between the shelves is, in our realization, about 6.5 cm (from above to above).

3. The grooves for the shelves are made with a circular saw. To obtain grooves as even as possible, make a sawing guide using a wooden stick nailed to the panel. Measure each time to accurately determine its location.

1. Stack the shelves one on top of the other, and trace the rounding which, after cutting, will make it easy to take the documents. An inverted plate will serve as a guide.

2. The cutting of roundings is made here in series, with band saw. If there is no machine of this type, use a jigsaw or chop saw.
