Just a couple of radiator covers I made. These were paying jobs.

-- I don't always measure once, but when I do, I cut twice.

I like them. I hadn’t considered doing this. When I remodel my kitchen I was thinking of relocating a radiator for cabinet placement. You might have just saved me a lot of work. Does the wood dry out and have trouble? Also does the transfer of the hear get interrupted much?

Kyle, I found the best way to emit heat is to close the back with a panel and use a thermal(aluminum) reflector on the back and top. You can vent the sides of the cover so the heater can work the way it was intended to and circulate the heat around the room.

They all look great and well made and you get paid on making them, nothing gets better than that.

Have your say...
