NORDLI hack: Drawers hiding useful tables
IKEA items used:
IKEA Nordli modular drawer chest
A simple hack for IKEA Nordli modular drawer chest. Now each drawer not only has storage space it can also hide a useful table.
Follow the instruction and make your own by laser cutting a wood panel.
What you need:
- Wood panel 6mm thickness, at least 320×390 mm for the short drawer and 320×790 mm for the long one. I’m using poplar panels, you can use any material that can be cut by your machine.
- Access to a laser cut machine to cut the wood panel. Fablabs are a global network of local labs and they provide access to tools for digital fabrication: fablabs.io/labs/map
- Design files, you will find both the designs files for the short and the long drawers: IKEA-Nordli-hack.zip
- Wood glue
Use the downloaded file to cut the panel with the laser cut machine.
Fix the hooks to the table using the glue
See it in action.
Made in Fablab Torino
