I’ve seen many hacks on the Fira mini chest, most of them decorative, so this one from PK Shiu is a new take on it. It turns out to be a pretty neat looking tool box but methinks it needs a coat of red.
He says, “A 10-minute hack to turn a plain looking Fira mini chest into a high tech looking tool box for my electronic parts.”
PK simply added Kosing handles to the top of the chest. Measure the centre line of the small drawers against the top piece of the chest (if not, the drawers will get stuck.) Screw in the handles (he added 4 washers as the screws were too long) before assembling the chest as usual.
