Cut an Expedit for a cutting table

Materials: Expedit bookshelf, Lagan countertop

Description: Becky spotted this hack on Prudentbaby and sent it over. It’s a lovely hack of an Expedit turned cutting table. The old Expedit which was taking up too much wall space and dominating the area was sized down, counter height. A new Lagan countertop was screwed on top of the Expedit and eyesore turned into a head turner.

    Great Site!! Just what I need I have my new house HALF furnished in IKEA but need to jazz up some stuff and have technical problems with how to attach the small Expidit cubes and some small wall cupboards high on the wall(double brick house but plaster chips easily). I am an artist so have some/many/lots of ideas on design but not the attaching materials,( L brackets too ugly) for upbeat modern house.
    ANY IDEAS OUT THERE??? Cheers Phoebe

    what happens when you cut into the chick pieces of the Expedit? do you get material to screw or attach to somehow?

    i’d like also decapitate my expedit!
