Expedit P1000160+(Medium)

Published on April 21st, 2010 | by Jules Yap


Two Expedits, one original Mix

Materials: 2 expedit 2×2 , some piece of wood

Description: I ask myself how to create an original 2×4 Expedit shelving unit, less expensive that the original one. So i try to join 2 small Expedit. (In France, Expedit 2×2 is 20 , Expedit 2×4 is 55)

To do what you see in the photos, I have to

- Fix top parts with medium plank
- Fix bottom parts with long plank (be sure you will not see middle holes)
- Fix the central parts with medium plank
- Create 2 holes in each side to “encase” the central parts
- Paint the screw in white

This is really easy to do and you can change the position of the colors.

And it’s done. See more here.
