Picture of Design showcase cabinet (hacking IKEA style)
_DSC5671.jpg
While I was searching for a nice showcase cabinet, I noticed that all the cabinets that I liked are really expensive. So the maker in me came up with this idea.
This cabinet is made from four IKEA pränt boxes, one IKEA dioder. The rest was just stuff that I already had.

Step 1: You will need

Very nice idea and great execution! This would compliment my collection setup greatly and fill in the last few empty spaces on the wall LOL Few questions:
- I can't seem to find it on Ikea's website and hope it is available in store in my location
- what is the dimension of the box? Can't quite be sure if I deciphered it correctly from the picture
- what is the diameter of the hole? I want to see if the Ikea Stolmen pole will fit through, may look for some PVC piping to strengthen the hole further, of cause I may just cut a larger hole myself

The box is 33 x 33 x 38 cm
The hole is 4,5 cm
I hope you can find the boxes. Have fun with it.

Cool design :) Instead of the aluminium rod that provides the extra support for the boxes you could also just use more of the aluminium pipe that you used as a spacer for the boxes. Cut it to fit inside the box, place it across the holes in the box and thread the boxes on with this piece of pipe already inside. Hope I'm making sense!

Yes you do make sense. I just don't have enough aluminum pipe in the right size, but that definitely would be a more elegant solution. Thanx

Nicke!
I was thinking if you take the back piece and put it in front of the pipe it should give a hovering feeling on the boxes.
Good job.

I was also thinking about that. And then paint the bushings black, but bringing the backs in front of the pipe is just a little to much work.
