Built-in Besta entertainment center

George is quite the hacker and has started his own blog documenting his personal Ikea hacks.

“I’ve done two kitchen remodels over the past few years where I hacked/modified Ikea cabinets, however I never documented the hacks. Anyway, I just posted an entertainment center build where I hacked a couple Ikea Besta products.

The point of the Besta hack is to raise the speakers, hide the components and cables. There is also a neat sliding shelf for the receiver.

  1. The “floating” effect is cool. How did you do this? Only one side is supported?
