Can you assemble a Besta frame without the center partition?
submitted by /u/Gielnor
I want to build a new living room display/storage console using Besta frames to integrate with the Besta bookcases I already own, but I'd like to use the whole width of the shelf if possible. The plan is for a 3 tall, 2 wide array bracketed by a bookcase at either end:
But with 6 shelves in the center instead of 12. How sturdy is the frame if you remove the center partition? Will the shelves deflect? I won't be putting anything heavy like a TV or anything on top, and each shelf will be holding 5-10 pounds max. If this is unworkable, let me know if there's any alternatives of a similar depth that pair well with the bookshelves. Thanks!
