How to Build a Bath Panel
Making a bath panel, if you’ve already got an acrylic panel fitted, take it off. You’ll probably find it’s screwed to the frame on the bottom. Undo any stabilizing brackets. These are usually bolted to the bath frame. Now measure the height and width of the panel. Most DIY outlets or merchants will cut the wood to size which is very handy. It’s also important that you used good quality marine ply of about 15 mm thickness. Try the wood to make sure the size is correct.
Here, we need to cut the panel around these two pipes. Mark the center of each pipe onto the panel. Measure and marked the depth of the pipes. With a flat bladed wood bit, cut two holes into the panel. This will eventually fit around the pipes. Square off the outsides with the set square. Now remove the section with the saw. Don’t forget to sand off any rough edges with medium grade sandpaper. Check the underside of the bath to see if there is anything in the way. The panel will have to be cut around them if there is.
Now to make things simple we’ve marked onto the bath with a pencil. Now transfer the markings to the panel. Cut any sections with the small saw. Now fit the panel into position. It will be probably a tight fit in which case knock into position gently. Mark across the bottom of the panel where the pivot holes will need to be drilled in order to screw the panel onto the frame.
We’re going to fix some decorative beading onto this panel. Mark the top and bottom positions where the beadings will be fixed. As most parts run down to the plug hole and they are there for in that level square off the lines with a level. Mark the vertical positions for the beading. Again use a level to mark the panel. Find the center of the panel and square this off vertically with the level. Now we’ve marked our panel and we’re ready to fix the beading. Choose a suitable bead profile. There are lots to choose from and cut a 45-degree angle using a measuring device.
Place this on the panel and mark the line of your other 45-degree angle. Now cut this to size. Mark panel pins into the beading. This will be a lot easier to fit if you’ve already started them in the beading. Position the beading on the bath panel taking care to line it up correctly.
Now just knock the pins into the panel but don’t knock them all the way in just in case they’ve gotten to be removed for minor adjustments later on. Now fix the bottom pieces of the beads in exactly the same way. Now cut another 45-degree angle and place this onto the panel between the other two lengths of beads. Mark and cut like before. Now it’s a good idea to use a saw when cutting small decorative wood like this. Line them up carefully and fix them in exactly the same way as before. Repeat the same process on the left hand side of the panel. When you're satisfied with the beading placement the nails can be hammered in all the way. To stop the wood from splitting it’s a good idea to flatten the nail point off with hammer.
We’re going to fix it a piece of edging strip to the corner of the bath panel. This will tidy up the rough edges of the plywood on the corner. Sand down with medium grade sandpaper and decorate it to suit your décor. This job can be completed for a fraction of the cost by buying an already made bath panel.
