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

Instructions:

Use the downloaded file to cut the panel with the laser cut machine.
