Materials: Antonius frame, Harlig doors, drawer runners, Jigsaw and Fixa screwdriver.
Description: Since one of our printers is 1cm too wide to fit inside a Besta cabinet we had to find a solution to house our two printers in a very small space. It had to be a cabinet with slide-out feature so we could tuck them away when not in use.
We realized that the Antonius frame was less than half the price than that of a standard DIY metal frame, so we bought one and assembled it.
As this was a very-low-budget hack we used aluminium profiles we had at home to attach the runners to the frame. The frame guides helped levelling the runners. Luckily a Harlig 40×60 door fits seamlessly between the runners.
For the top and the front we cut two Harlig doors (60×57 for the top, 60×70 for the front) to match the width of the Antonius frame. Because this cabinet was supposed to be alongside a Vika table, the length of the top was kept at 60cm, despite the 54cm frame length.
