RAST: from bedside to desk

Materials: RAST, drill.

Description: We needed to divide our workspaces and place a printer and a notebook, so we decide to hack a RAST.


1: Screw the first shelf (it will serve as divider)
2: Drill a hole on both sides to place the second shelf (it will serve as base for the notebook)

  1. I love this hack. There’s so much potential in those little Rasts, and they’re cheap enough that you can be really adventurous when making a space-saving little cubby.

    Best wishes, Alex

    Great and simple hack but so efficient.
    I must use it for hiding my printer! :)
