  • If the table legs are made of wood, they should be coated with a primer and paint of a suitable color. You can also resort to staining. It is better to close the sections of the OSB sheet with special tapes, for example, made of PVC.

More ideas

It is possible to make many more different furniture designs from OSB panels. These can be comfortable and roomy racks, wall shelves, coffee tables, cabinets and even a full-fledged bar counter. Consider a few step-by-step instructions for making useful and functional pieces of furniture from OSB panels.

The easiest way is to make ordinary shelves on the wall from OSB. Such structures will not need additional finishing or processing. At the same time, a well-made shelf can easily serve for many years.

If one wall shelf is not enough, a home craftsman can craft an entire shelving unit. To build a rack from OSB boards, the master will need to make a metal frame to which they will be attached. In general, to carry out the work you will need:

  • dowel-nails;
  • screw and drill for working with metal profiles;
  • metal screws;
  • jigsaw;
  • drill;
  • screwdriver;
  • scissors for cutting metal;
  • roulette;
  • pliers;
  • metal profiles;
  • sheets of OSB (must be cut into separate parts, shelves of specific sizes).

The order of work will be as follows.

  • First of all, you need to draw up drawings indicating all dimensions of the future structure. In accordance with the dimensions, profiles are cut and shelves are cut from OSB panels.
  • First you need to install vertical metal posts. Horizontal profiles for shelves are placed on them. Next, the shelves are fastened with screws with a slight offset.
  • To make the structure stronger, you need to put both the central profile and the vertical stand in the center. The profile must be cut taking into account +25 mm on each side.
  • Bend sharp edges with a hammer.
  • Before attaching the shelves, the center of the cross section should be marked. The OSB-part is fixed by means of screws.
  • Next, you need to mount a profile structure to the wall in rows until the rack reaches the height planned by the scheme.

Beautiful and original country furniture is often made from OSB panels. For the foundation of such structures, frame bases are most often used, made of stronger, wear-resistant, but at the same time budgetary materials.

So, in order to build a cozy sofa for a summer residence, it is possible to use OSB sheets, wooden bars, as well as mattresses and pillows specially purchased or made with your own hands. All parts are marked out, cut in accordance with the shapes and sizes, and then fastened together into a single structure. Finished furniture can be decorated as you like.

From the material in question, you can also make a wonderful built-in wardrobe with sliding doors. Let's consider the stages of its assembly.

  • First, you need to design future furniture, make drawings and sketches of all the components.
  • Next, you need to transfer the drawing to the wall. This is one of the most important stages - the quality and resource of furniture will depend on it.
  • Then the pre-cut side partition and wall are installed. If the height of the cabinet is from stove to stove, then the shields must be attached directly to the ceiling, floor and back wall. If the structure is lower, then the component is attached to the roof.
  • Then they install pre-prepared shelves, boxes, rods.If it is planned to put removable shelves, then they must be installed using special fittings. If the fixation is rigid, then you need to use the corners. To make the design as reliable and strong as possible, it is recommended to resort to rigid fixation.
  • This is followed by the installation of sliding doors. Most often, it is these doors that are installed in the considered furniture modifications.
  • After that, you can start decorating OSB sheets. You don't have to resort to intricate decorations - it is enough to coat the surfaces with high quality colorless varnish.

It is not recommended to equip built-in furniture with hinged doors. In this case, it will not be possible to make a selection for the hinge fittings, and even such designs look less attractive and modern.
