You must have often faced the problem of assembling the furniture. By buying furniture, you will surely receive instructions for assembly.

Use a cordless drill (screwdriver) instead of a regular screwdriver. Cordless Drill with various extensions (drills) greatly facilitates the process of assembling the furniture. While you’ll have a real hard time working with regular screwdriver (even if you are assebling small pieces of furniture), Cordless Drill is a great choice of tools, and it is also very practical when your piece of furniture need to be mounted on the wall.
Use a rubber mallet instead of a hammer. All that pile of wooden pegs, which are an integral part of the package, they will need to be set into right place so they could attach two boards or plywood. Additionally you’ll often need a wood glue that you’ll have to put, in small quantities, into the slots for wooden wedges and when you finally connect the two parts of plywood a significant kick will be required for every part to perfectly snap into place. By using an ordinary hammer you can easily damage the chipboard, while the rubber mallet evenly distributes force and thus contributes to better adherence of furniture. Pay attention only to an important detail: buy the white mallet to avoid leaving traces on the furniture.
Separate and count all the parts. Before you begin to assembl you should organize material and check and count the number of screws, planks, wooden wedges and other parts; in other word: check that the contents of your package fully corresponds with the elements needed to assemble your furniture pieces. Also take extra care when sorting the type and length of the screws. If only one screw is missing or does not match the size and there you have it – unnecessary trouble.
Adjust before assembly. Due to the the fact that you’re assembling furniture on your own, and you need, for instance, a hole for a cable or you just want to add your personal touch of individuality by painting certain shelf or gluing a foil, sticker, tapestry or something similarg, do it when the elements are separated rather than after assembly. This is to avoid accidental staining or damaging other parts.
