It is made with his own hands from the special sections that are mounted on the surface with the help of:
- self-tapping screws and metal anchors.
- rotary and screwdriver (you can use an ordinary drill with a special nozzle).
- Building levels for smooth installation batten.
- Tin snips or a hacksaw (grinders can be used).
- Roulette or ruler.
- to manufacture wooden frame used similar instruments and appliances, only instead of a hacksaw or metal shears used or conventional jigsaw saw.
also be replaced and metal screws.Instead, they used wood screws with a larger thread.
Council.If such devices and tools is not at hand and do not even have the possibility to take them with friends, instead of the screwdriver and the gun used drill and screws are replaced by the nails that hammered hammer.
- When choosing a wooden frame should take into account that the wood due to its technical characteristics is quite simply absorbs moisture and can respond to the constant temperature changes.Under the influence of this material rassyhaetsya and shrinks, causing cracks in the crate that violate strength of the whole decoration.
Council.To protect the wooden crate from moisture and temperature extremes can be each element of varnish or paint.
After manufacturing a skeleton made of MDF panels installation on the ceiling with the help of:

The apartments such work can not perform, but in the house they are carried out with the help of:
- extruded polystyrene.
You can use other materials, which are sold in sheets or mats and have a dense structure.They are cut size, which is similar to cell size and battens inserted therein.
for their attachment can use liquid nails or construction adhesive.But this is only the case if the material is loose in the cells.
