Fit a Faktum wine rack into kitchen cab gap

customized Faktum wine rack

Materials: Old used Faktum cabinet and left overs of your oak kitchen counter

Description: We installed our new Ikea Kitchen, but it was a little gap between the last cabinet and the wall. That was bothering me a lot. Ikea’s solution was to place a cover, but my solution was to convert an old Faktum cabinet into a wine rack that could fit precisely into that gap.

    Sorry for the bad pictures… we were not ready with the kitchen by that time… At least now it is more organized! :P

  2. Never thought about doing this. Might have to try it myself!

    this is stinging me to go to my neighborhood that has the correct saw i need and have the “battiscopa” to the size right to fit our gap. i projected this months ago, but our kitchen is still a work on progress, not yet finished. we only began the construction last march…..

    but i have plenty of hacking in my mind ;-)
