Trak Shak kitchen addition
Oddly enough, we'd only had the TRAK SHAK for a little
over a week when we took it away (on our honeymoon!) and I was sitting very
comfortably having a glass or two of champagne and idly thinking when I sort of
noticed that there was a large unused space beneath the existing shelf.
This article describes the removable shelf I made to fit under the existing
pull-out shelf on the kitchen unit of a TRAK SHAK. It may
not suit all TRAK SHAK kitchens as it slides under the
stove for storage and different stoves may not have sufficient clearance to
allow this. However modifications should be easy enough.
The frame for the shelf was made out of square aluminum tubing and aluminum
angle. The shelf itself is a piece of Colourbond steel. The frame and the shelf
were assembled using pop rivets. Two small steel angles were fixed to the legs
of the existing shelf using self-tapers to provide support for one end of the
shelf and to hold the new shelf in place Short lengths of aluminum angle were
fixed to the frame so that the shelf slotted into place between the legs. The
other end simply rests on the shelf used to hold the storage bins. For traveling,
the new shelf slides neatly under the stove.
Simple, quick to make and very useful.
