Say good-bye to walk-in confusion thanks to a modular system that provides made-to-measure storage solutions. This island is both attractive and practical, and it’s relatively easy to build.
This MDF storage unit consists of modules that can be assembled according to your needs and available closet space. The plan we propose includes designs using three and six modules. With the addition of finishing mouldings and a surface panel, your island will look like a single piece of furniture.

You can use either flathead woodscrews or a nailer with finishing nails to assemble modular furniture. Always pre-drill holes if you choose to use screws, the panel may split otherwise.
Always try to join parts on a flat surface. Make sure they are straight and fit exactly. Whether you choose to use screws or a nailer, glue all parts for added sturdiness.
MDF is a versatile material that makes it easy to build strong, sturdy and affordable furniture. It is advisable to always glue the parts together with wood glue before fastening them with nails or screws. If the nails or screws do not provide enough strength, use clamps to hold the assembly together while the glue dries.
Always drill pilot holes using a countersink bit, with the pieces in their final assembled position. This will prevent the MDF from buckling or splitting under the torque of the screws. In one motion, the countersink bit bores a hole for the body of the screw as well as a cavity to conceal the screw head. You can use a driver-drill to do this, but it is advisable to finish tightening the screws with a manual screwdriver to prevent the driver-drill’s speed and force from damaging the MDF and weakening the screw’s grip.
For some projects it is best to use finishing nails. In such cases, using a pneumatic nailer will get the job done more quickly and easily, and the nails will hardly show.
Always wear a protective mask when cutting or sanding MDF as the dust can be irritating and is a potential heath hazard. Work outside if you can; if this is not possible, close any air vents and doors leading to other rooms so as to prevent the dust from spreading. Open a window while you work and cover all items in the room with dust sheets. Vacuum once you have finished cutting.
