    Sliding wardrobe doors

    I will be building some wardrobes for a loft room soon, and looking at putting sliding door tracks on there to optimise usable floor space in the bedroom. The sliding rail kits show they are built for 18mm panels, but my question is what material is standard? I am think 18mm edge banded MFC...

    DIY fitted bedroom furniture?

I want to buy this in and fit it myself, but don't know where to shop now that MFI have gone (had previously done the same with Schreiber branded units) . The reason for buying in rather than building from scratch is purely about...

    What material for workshop shelving

    Just after some advise. I am planning on building a shelving unit in my workshop. This will be along the lines of a 'shelved wardrobe' for want of a better description. The planned dimensions are 2'(d) x 3'(w) x 6'(h) I would normally build this kind of thing (cupboards) out of 18mm MDF but...
