Materials: Pax wardrobe
Description: We have a side door that never gets used. Stuff got piled in front of it all the time, so it was time to do something.
I cut a Pax wardrobe half and fixed it in front of the door. I needed two doors, which were cut half. I used one door for side filler panes to make it look like built in unit. Second door was used in a shoe rack project.
Top needed to be more solid than wardrobe top. I used a kitchen worktop for finishing.
Inside I have one rail for coats and space for shoes.

Materials: Finnvar stand
Description: I repurposed the FINNVAR stand and turned it into a height adjustable slider rail for my DSLR camera slider (which I built by cannibalizing my girlfriends roller-skates and spending countless hours at the tool store – but that’s a different story).
The concept is pretty straight forward and easy to copy: Essentially everything remains the same besides the the top board which is replaced with a longer one (1,4m), in order to get some sliding range. It’s also very important to add stops to each end of the sliding board, to keep your slider – and your camera on top of it for that matter – from sliding off the construction.
I also added some felt patches to one side of the board, to make the ride smooth and quiet.
Materials: Expedit 2×2 and 1×1, inserts with door and drawers
Description: First of all, visit gerhard-richter.com and search some colour-combinations you like and buy them as spray colours.
Ikea does not offer a 2×1 Expedit, so I had to combine a 2×2 and a 1×1 in two 2×1.
I want a 2×1 horizontal with rolls, the vertical 2×1 is a side product.
I used my old and crappy 2×2 and bought a new 1×1.
