I didn't like the rotational clamps JoeyC designed, so I made a change in my own modification.

These are slide-clamps that replace the top-clamps of the original. Instead of drilling the acryllic, these can be just glued. (The front-panel still should be drilled, however, see instructions)


These instructions are for total newbies like me. Most of you probably won't need them! ;)

1) Cut out the lower plexi-glass pieces, and glue the lower clamps (from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26089 )

2) With the clamps sitting on the frame, draw (With a dry-erase marker for cleaning) the top line where to glue these slide clamps. In case I wasn't clear, there should be enough clearence so that the top is flush when the bottom swings free.

3) Glue the slide-pieces in place. Do this for the sides, and front. Also, drill and attach a drawer-handle to the front for easy removal.

All pieces are removed quickly by lifting and pulling the glass out. The handle on the front makes this easy. (Picture will be sent later)
