Cheap drawers for shop-built storage, in green.
« on: January 30, 2007, 10:37 AM »
I've seen photos of shop-built Sysports where the builder went
to the effort of using matching Festool Green paint.

IKEA sells inexpensive polypropylene boxes in a green that's very
close to Festool Green. The Trofast boxes are all 30cm wide
(11-3/4in) by 42cm long (16-1/2in) and come in three heights: 10cm
(4in), 23cm (9in), 36cm (14-1/4in). They become drawers when fitted
in the dadoes of a simple wood frame; they'll fit either wide side out
or long side out.

Without the optional transparent lids, the boxes are nestable. With
lids, stackable. The lids are recessed, so a lidded box will still
fit in a drawer frame.

Cheap: the 23cm box is 3 USD.

Trofast appears to be available at IKEAs worldwide. Start at

Now the bad news: At least in the US and Canada, this is an in-store,
non-mail order item. While there are several stores, large areas of
both countries don't have an IKEA nearby.

whose nearest IKEA is 75 miles away
