ALGOT WING Work Station





Materials: ALGOT, ANTONIUS

Description: A expandable compact working table and cabinet made from ALGOT frame & basket, ALGOT frame of laundry bag, ANTONIUS Top, and hinges purchased from next door hardware shop. I would like to name it as “ALGOT WING” from its expansion table top on both sides. I got this idea from IKEA’s NORDEN gateleg table.

After I installed my Vika work table, I started to looking for a cabinet. I found that the ANTONIUS / ALGOT frame basket provided big enough capacity and fitted the table and my budget. Not only that, with some modifications I could expand my work space and adjust it to any situation.

I use the ALGOT frame sized 70cm as the main structure and used ALGOT laundry basket frame as a gateleg. The ALGOT table top is too narrow so I used three ANTONIUS table tops sized 44x55cm which perfectly fit in the width of the frame. I joined three table tops with hinges then installed the center top to the frame with the given wall mount fittings provided in ALGOT set. That’s it.

    This is an amazing space saving hack in my opinion. I’m not sure what gave you the idea, but thanks for sharing it! It would be good for extra desk space, or for a sewing space. Being able to fit the shelving and fold down table UNDER the desk is such a great feature.

    How did you attach the gateleg frame?

    Very neat. And, by the way, love the site!

    One question: are Algot baskets designed to slide out and off from their rails easily, or are they designed to be difficult to wrestle in and out of their rails?
