Yew-Jin make a nifty cut that turns the Rast bedside table into a compact printer rack.
He says, “In search for a printer rack i found the Rast bedside table is somewhat suitable but it is a little too tall to fit under my work desk, so I hack it. I flipped the Rast bedside table upside down,altered the side panels so that it is shorter in height and move the self lower to accommodate my fax machine allowing the lid to be opened. I have also reduced the width of the shelf such that it provide just enough space for the fax machine to sit on while allowing the All-In-One Printer at the bottom to open the scanner lid. Overall it is a low cost (about 15Euro) solution that keep both my printer and fax machine neatly organised under the desk.”
