Care & Maintenance

Modeller shelf systems are finished with a blend of polymerized linseed oil & beeswax providing excellent protection against water and liquids as well as long-lasting durability in a lower-gloss, antique sheen. Spills or moisture should be wiped off if left standing water could cause a stain to appear. If so use 0000 grade steel wool to buff out as much of the affected area as possible. Then, use a lint-free cloth to apply a small amount of the Original Wood Finish to the damaged area. modeller wood coasters are proved to protect surface for glass ware

Locate your wall studs inside the wall

Mark both sides of each 1½” stud location within the wall (usually 16” apart, mark each second stud for 32” wide system setup). 2” stainless steel wood screws are provide for wood studs. Installing support slats over wall studs makes for an easier and stronger installation but it is not essential. Slats can be installed anywhere when using the proper anchors select correct anchors for any holes that don’t hit a stud

Install the first slat

Choose where you want to place your first slat. Mark your desired height at the top. Pre-drill a hole at the top to ensure you hit a stud. Screw a fastener in the top most hole first but not completely so the slat can still move, hold the level along its length to insure it is vertical and aligns with the stud. Once you are satisfied with the location, height and alignment use the slate as a drill guide for the remaining holes. after pre-drilling each hole through the rail screw in the remaining mounting screws.

Spacing slates

Using a shelf as a guide with a level placed on it mark the position for the second slat in two spots, top and bottom. Check that a shelf fits easily between the slats along its full length before mounting more slats. Mark the minimum level gap required for the shelf, there should be max 1/8” gap between shelves when mounted.

Aligning slates

While holding the second rail in position place a long 4’ level or another straight edge across the top of both slats to ensure they are at the same hight and all the holes line up. Mark the level height of the second slat. Attach the second slat using the same method as the first.

Insert shelf supports

Make sure you have a pair of right and left shelf support rods. Start with the shorter part of the arm, Align it parallel to the side of the shelf. Insert the bottom hook from the top turn it 90° and slide the short part down into the hole. Before you reach the bend turn the arm back to parallel with the shelf side then lift the support up as you rotate to put it in its final position    

Hang shelf

Pick up the shelf from the short edges so you can touch the supports underneath. Hold the shelf 45% down so you can see the bottom hooks at the back. Insert the lower hooks first one at a time then lift the shelf front up until the shelf is level. insert the top hooks one at a time. Use a mallet to lightly tap the bracket hooks in to set them fully if necessary.

Assemble cabinet box

Lay the cabinet bottom panel flat on a table. Align a side panel to the base so the connectors mate, there is a small amount of play so make sure the front edge is flush then using the provided 4mm hex wrench tighten the panel connections. Do the same for the second vertical side then finally place the top panel on and tighten it down the same way.

Hang cabinet

Using a right and left pair of cabinet supports, insert them in the support slats opposite each other with the longer side flat facing up. Slide the cabinet in place resting on the brackets. While still holding the cabinet in place use the provided screw and washer to attach the cabinet to both brackets at the narrow point of the bracket.

Attach doors

Cabinet door hinges clip/snap on, once attached use the adjustment screws on the hinge to centre the doors in their opening.
