5.When i nail it, i have to go through the laminate sheet ? is it ok !
Don't EVEN consider it or you'll be very sorry. Concussive penetration will crack the laminate
You should have enough wood to hit around the edges...and if not...ADD it!
6. During nailing - What is the plan b if the nail broke half way?
Awwww....C'mon. I've never "broke" a nail while hammering...only bent them, and if you use 1" Bright "Finish" nails, you don't have much of a chance of even bending them before they sink through the MDF into the underlying Poplar.
I'm sorry, but really,the build you've attempted is obviously something a bit beyond the scope of what you should have attempted first off. You simply did not know (...or were not correctly advised of...) enough "right answers" before you jumped...a common mistake among aspiring and anxious DIY'ers. Trying to "learn" while doing only works if you don't get ahead of the info needed to do it right to begin with.
I will give you this much...at least you do go slow and ask before real disaster strikes. And what you do/have completed looks better than most beginners might accomplish.
Now add some wood strips around /on the sides and do it right.
Sorry for the intensity of my response this time around but it's frustrating to see a potentially great project headed down the tubes. (...nailing though Laminate....Gaaaaaaa!!!) Given the chance, I'd never of suggested Laminate for your project...too many "build issues' and limited usage. But we are already well past that point so just consider doing what NEEDS to be done and do it. PM me for complete instructions to salvage this project, then post the end results. You don't need (...or deserve...)any more public spankings.
