Learning Center Furniture
This furniture section is intended to serve as a guide for constructing A.C.E. Learning Center furniture. It is recommended that all Learning Center furniture be built by a finish carpenter or cabinetmaker. The quality of the furniture will be much more satisfactory if done by a professional.
The illustrations and drawings listed below demonstrate the use of laminated materials. Plywood, chipboard or particle board (high-density cabinet grade) may be used for the base material. Particle board, however, can weigh as much as fifty percent more than plywood and is sometimes permeated with formaldehyde and stamped with a warning about being used in a closed area such as a Learning Center.
A high-quality enamel paint may be used on interior surfaces. The tambour as illustrated may be replaced with plastic laminate (such as Formica™) or carpeting, or may be simply painted.
When purchasing building materials, request a "Certificate of Asbestos-Free Material" from the supplier. Specifically require such a certificate for any Celotex™, especially when used as bulletin board material.
REMEMBER: Care exercised in construction will be reflected in the quality of your A.C.E. Learning Center. You never get a second chance to make a first impression!
