An Easier Way of Assembling Your Furniture
Just about everyone has bought a shelf, table, or chair from a big box store. This furniture usually comes in flat boxes, contains vague instructions, and almost always missing parts. After years of assembling these random pieces of furniture, we’ve learned a thing or two about how to make assembly easier. In this article, we’ll go over 4 helpful tips from a handyman furniture assembly expert for you can use on your next assembly project.
Clean Your Workspace
Before starting any assembly, it’s important to clean and clear your working area. Having a large, open area to assemble furniture means you can spread out parts and not worry about hiding that tiny bag of screws that seems to always go missing.
Unpack and Organize
With your workspace cleared, open the furniture box and begin separating contents. Group pieces together by visual similarity. Assembled furniture often comes with various screws, nuts, bolts, caps, and so forth. You can organize these small parts with sandwich bags or cups to keep them from scattering during assembly.
Read the Instructions
We all know someone who refuses to read directions for assembly. While their assembly projects might be completed with no issue, this approach can lead to serious problems when assembling a more complex piece of furniture. When you read the directions begin identifying the listed to familiarize yourself during the actual assembly.
Grab the Right Tools
If you’re buying a less complex piece of furniture, it will often come with the tools needed for assembly; usually a hex key (also called allen wrench). If you’re assembling something a little more complex, you might need a few extra tools to make the process easier. Some helpful tools to have are an adjustable wrench, phillips and flathead screwdriver, rubber mallet, a level, and tape measure.
