Description: I went to Ikea and i found some Besta Tofta panels that costed only 15euro. I made a little project using sweethome 3D, a free open source program. If someone interested i can give the file. Here the steps:
Step 1: Trace the panels with some adhesive tape following the pictures, in order to obtain the different sides of the main container (a box). I found 1 big panel and 4 little, so I had to connect 2 small panels with some junctions to obtain a big panel. If you are lucky you can find 3 big panels. In this case you can build the box more easily because you needn’t junctions for attach different shape panels Step 2: Cut the panels following the lines like you can see in the pictures Step 3: Connect all panels using some L junctions (you can find them at the hardware store) Step 4: If you want you can add some panels inside perpendicularly (like in picture) for obtain more stability. Step 5: Fix the capita brackets in the upper panels (like it’s a unique hob) Step 6: Make 2 holes for the brackets in the cover of the main box Step 7: Connect the top of the box to the hob ( 2 panels+ 2 capita brackets) Step 8: If you want you can put some glue for the top of the box but the weight is enough heavy for stay still and it’s better to leave it free in order to connect cables more easily.
