In this project, I'll show you how to build a custom door for an IKEA Expedit shelving unit using simple techniques and materials. This was a really fun build and you could easily customize it to fit a different shelving unit!

Don't miss the build video above for more information!

Step 1: Gather Tools and Materials

The tools required for this build are super basic. You really don't need anything more than a drill to make this whole project. You can have your local home center cut the plywood for you if you don't have the tools required.

<p>Very nice project indeed. I simply hope you've not used the original vinyl covers, I understand putting an Abba cover instead of Who's Next can put some shame on you !</p><p>Regarding aluminium, I've been told it can only be brazed under neutral atmosphere. I know this is how they proceed concerning aluminium stage trusses.</p>
No, I had the image printed, it's not an actual album cover. And the aluminum brazed just fine, it's a pretty common technique. Thanks!
