Assembling Manufactured Office Furniture

Manufactured office furniture can be a wonderful way to save money in your home office. If you've
never put together a piece of manufactured furniture though, it can be a bit tricky and frustrating. While
some stores offer to assemble the furniture, there's usually a few involved. That's why it's important to
learn to assemble your own office furniture. And, with these tips, it's extremely easy to do.
Tip #1: Start in Your Home Office
It's easy to forget that once assembled, some manufactured furniture won't fit through doorways. Do
yourself a favor and start out in your home office. This will prevent you from having to take the
manufactured furniture back apart and starting over.
Tip #2: Read the Instructions Thoroughly
Before you even begin to assemble manufactured furniture, it's important to read the instructions from
start to finish. This will give you a better idea of what needs to be done and how long it will take. It will
also let you know if you're going to need help with the project.
Tip #3: Count All the Hardware
Nothing is worse than getting halfway through assembling manufactured furniture and realizing they
didn't send you enough pieces. While some of these pieces are easy to find in hardware stores, some
aren't. Many companies will also mail free replacement pieces, but they could take weeks to arrive.
Taking the time to count out the hardware and compare the number of pieces to the instructions gives
you a chance to return the furniture before you get too far along.
Tip #4: Check the Furniture Pieces
Sometimes manufacturing companies make mistakes and forget to include certain pieces or put in the
wrong pieces. Look at the instructions and compare them to the pieces that are in the box. Some pieces
may look right, but when you look closer you may discover that you got two left sides pieces instead of
one left and one right. Going through the pieces can save you a lot of frustration.
Tip #5: Tighten All the Screws at the End
If you tighten all the screws down while assembling, chances are certain screw holes won't line up.
Instead of screwing the screws down tight, screw them in enough to hold the pieces together. When the
entire piece is assembled, go back and tighten all the screws.
Tip #6: Use Furniture Markers to Hide Scratches and Small Dings
No matter how careful you are, you may end up with scratches and dings in your manufactured office
furniture. Thankfully, these little blemishes are easily hidden with furniture markers. These markers can
be found at your local discount retail stores for around $5.
