THE BOOK “COLUMN”

BOOK If you perform construction industrial bookcases and shelves, you will notice that their depth is normally twice the width of the book. So the books have to put in two rows, and it is very uncomfortable, otherwise much unused space remains. To make the Cabinet more narrow, it is impossible — it is unstable. The way out is to provide access to books from several sides, and the wardrobe to put an end to the wall. This principle was the basis for the proposed column for books.
The Cabinet is symmetrical about its longitudinal plane. The selected height of the shelves 265 mm (for most books) and 325 mm (under publishing big formats), depth — 227 mm (sawn along the plate width 460 mm). Connection plate — wooden nageljami on glue casein or PVA. Epoxy glue to use is undesirable, as the plates can be stained and traces of stains. Special attention should be given to the thoroughness of the partitioning plates and holes for the pins — this will determine the labour costs of Assembly and its quality. With success it is possible to apply the compound on the screws in the places where their heads will not be visible. For protection of the chipboard from the bundle with connection screws in the plates must be drilled the necessary holes.
The Assembly should begin with the lower cabinets, which is set on the ground frame made of bars of 70X35 mm. Connection — pins or screws is shown schematically, in the form of axial lines. Each upper unit is collected separately. In the collected volume are attached to the rows of shelves. Between them is inserted the partition 13. It can be glued from two of fibreboard or execute from a single sheet of plywood (before Assembly paste self-adhesive paper, plastic or painted with an enamel paint).
 
Bookcase
Bookcase “column”:
1 — ground frame, 2 — the bottom of the tables, 3 and 7 of the side wall tables, 4 — the bottom of the rack, 5 — Nagel, 6 — partition tables, 8, 11 a — shelf rack, 9, 12 — lateral walls of the rack, 10, 13, partitions.
 
In the assembled blocks A and B stacked and should clarify the location holes for the pins to connect. Nageli better to take a long, about 50 mm. Connect nodes to the heavy blows of the mallet head gasket.
 
If you use plates with double-sided polishing, the polished surface is put outside; inside cover decorative paper, paint, varnish, plastic, etc.
The presence of mutually perpendicular planes attached to the Cabinet construction the necessary rigidity and strength.
 
Edges of plates can be finished with a plastic ribbon, veneer, paper, wood. Do not have to choose the material for edges in the color plates: looks great contrasting colors. For example: yellow plate with a brown edge.
 
The desire of some parties to the Cabinet can be with doors. They can be solid, glass or mirror. Piano hinges are used, as they are more reliable and time warp.
 
Using this principle, we can construct many variants of the volumetric structures, taking into account own possibilities and availability of materials.
