After bringing all pieces of furniture in the same place, we had to bolt them together. Afterwards, I also added LED lights to make working on the hardware easier. In the future I plan to make the lighting on each shelf individually controllable, that’s why all the LED strips have separate connectors.

Parts used:

  • ~ 5m of LED lighting strips, warm light
  • furniture screws

Software used:
