Ikea was having a sale on these boxes and they looked like they would slide right into my Expedit bookcase that I have my turn tables on but that was not the case. However it wasnt to far off.

Step 1: The cutdown

The normal Trissa box is 13 3/4 inches wide

The opening in the Expedit is 13 inches which means that we need to shave 3/8 of an inch off each side. We have to cut evenly off of both sides so the handle cutout remains in the middle.

The bottom also needs to loose some girth it starts out as a square 13 and 1/4 inch. One side needs to be hacked down to 12 and 1/2 inches.

Now for 45s there is a smaller Trissa box. It starts off with a face that is 9 1/8 by 8 1/2 we are going to make it into 8 1/8 by 8. We do this by shaving 1/2 inch off the two sides and the top.

Then cut 1/2 inch off the top of each of the sides. The bottom needs to be cut 1 inch off one side down to 7 3/4 inch.
The black & white looks much better than the plastic box facings! Good call.
