bookshelf with inserts

IKEA bookshelf with wooden IKEA filing boxes that didn't fit. I made them fit by sanding roughly 1/8" off the height of each one. Now they should act as extra shear bracing.

    Ha, came across this at Ikea Hacker. Nice work, Richard.

    Very nice!
    Too bad the MACKIS drawers don't automatically fit the EXPEDIT. You're right, they should!

    So you only shaved off some height, or did you have to shave any width off the boxes as well?

    only the height. the width is perfect. go figure!
