Some people might think the standard 4,5″ inch plastic legs that come with SEKTION are just not strudy or strong enough.

So what to do when you do not want to use them or want a more practical way of strengthening the base.

In this post we are going to give you a couple of practical solutions and also a few services that offer solutions to this problem!

Sektion base cabinets with custom made legs from pine.

Create your own custom leg-base support instead of the plastic IKEA SEKTION leg stands.
If you want to add strength and save a few pennies you can make your custom legs from pine or other lumber/materials of your choice!

In this case we made it from pine cut from a 2x6x8 lumber. In this case you can create the base 4 1/2″ and then make and paint your own trim as you wish!
Give it a try.
