Divide the EKET cube into two with a shelf.
My daughter likes to listen to music or audiobooks with her CD player.
To keep her CDs organized, I was looking for a small CD rack. Unfortunately, they were only ugly, huge or no racks to be found in shops. (Yes, CDs are soo old-school!)
So I transformed an EKET shelf in no time at all into a CD rack. The shelf is mounted at a height to also serve as a bedside table at her KURA bed.
Materials for EKET shelf:
- 1 EKET cube (25cm)
- 1 MDF board (31.4 x 22cm)
- 2 MDF boards (15 x 22cm)
- Spray paint
- Pocket hole jig
Using a pocket hole jig (and securing it with a clamp), you drill pocket holes into the underside of your MDF board. Then spray paint the board.
After the paint has dried, turn your shelf upside down and place the two smaller MDF boards left and right.

Then place the painted board on top. Screw the board through the pocket holes to the shelf.
The smaller board help with the exact placement of the rack. After screwing in the board, the two small boards are removed.
Turn the EKET shelf around, hang it on the wall mounting rail and you are done!
