The Besta tv cabinet for a tight spot

Materials: Besta Tofta Doors, Kitchen hinges

Description: I Needed to build a gloss white TV cabinet that would fit in a very precise space. I cut down Besta Tofta doors to make the cabinet then fitted smaller doors to the front with Ikea push open/close fittings.

    Thankyou, I use a new fine tooth hand saw to avoid ripping the edges of the gloss laminate

    I love how clean the cabinet looks! It’s nice to have cabinets to hide away all the DVDs and games. I hate the clutter. This is beautiful! What did you use to cut the Besta cabinet?
