  1. Legs for Ikea TV Stand

    JUST THE LEGS. CABINET IS IKEA I moved in with my girlfriend, and she already had a whole entertainment center. I had this TV stand and didn't know what to do with it. It originally sat flat on the ground. So I made 4 legs out of 1X4 red oak with blocks of 3X3 at the top where they attached to...
  2. 1. IKEA Dust Deputy Cart (inspired by Kelster58)

    Two of my projects brought me to Lumberjocks. Dust cart inspired by Kelster58 Japanese toolbox inspired Mafe. This project is about the first one. I've seen many (well, couple) cyclone cart designs. Most of them are designed as a side by side or stacked trolley. I consider both...
  3. My new workbenches

    These are my recently completed basement workshop benches. I made them my height, that is, they're too short for normal humans (I'm 5'5"), and it is SO nice to have a bench that isn't too tall for me. I do a lot of sitting down carving work as well and it is even nicer to have a bench that is...
  4. Display Cabinet

    One of the things I have wanted to do for quite awhile is build a display cabinet to showcase my work. This past weekend a couple of things came together to make this happen. I was driving around when I heard that IKEA was having a sale. I often use IKEA cabinet doors for jigs so I decided to...
  5. Ikea Bunk Bed Hack

    We had a convertible crib (made toddler bed) and an Ikea toddler bed in a small-ish room made smaller by the fact that two kids were sharing the same space for toys. It came time to figure out how to make the most of the space and we decided to try a hack to blend two Ikea toddler beds into bunk...
  6. Staked Low Stool for Ikea Kitchen

    This is my first foray into staked furniture making. I bored the mortises with just a brace and bit and cut the leg tenons from square stock and shaped the round end with a spokeshave. If I make other staked furniture I'll be picking up a conical reamer and making a DIY tenon cutter. Wood used...
  7. Hickory Pallet Wood Pot Rack, On A Strict Budget

    This was a project that was done for someone on a tight budget. It is made from all recycled material, except for the hooks. The wood was from a hickory pallet. The brackets were made from a piece of aluminum bar that was about to be tossed. The hanging bars are from left over copper pipe...
  8. Kitchen Island based on IKEA cabinets

    Plywood outside, IKEA inside. Drawers have power plugs which automatically swich off when the drawer is closed.
  9. Quick and EASY Lego Table

    This was made as an Xmas gift for two of my nephews. Question: What do you do when your shop has been totally packed up and moved to allow for a new steel ceiling and you don't have the ability to make even the simplest of tables???? Answer: You purchase a table from Ikea and get busy with a...
  10. TV Stand designed with Sketchup

    This TV stand by itself is nothing too extraordinary. It has some nice features which I designed such as the rear baffle to run the wires to the back and the removable back to access/hide those same wires. It's made of clear Radiata pine ( Pinus Radiata) and there is some hardware pulling it...
  11. Ikea-inspired Headboard

    My wife found a headboard she really liked at Ikea when we were there this Spring. However, it did not come in king size, so it wouldn't work for us. I took a picture and put it on my "to do" list. Now that we've moved, (and I have a table saw!) I went to my local big box and procured 2 sheets...
  12. Ikea Hack / Bubinga Bowl

    I found a Centrera Lykta Lantern in the scratch and dent room at my local Ikea. It is a candle lantern with an aluminum base and glass globe. The glass globe on the scratch and dent Lykta had seen better days but I was most interested in the aluminum base which had a lot of possibilities. I am...
  13. Moxon Vise

    Hello! This is my Moxon-vise. It has helped me a lot when dovetailing and doing other forms of precise woodworking. The ability to transport it between home, job and woodworking-school has been a big plus! Hardware is made by Benchcrafted. The benchtop is from IKEA. Side note: the first...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and for those who don't believe in Christmas have a Happy Holiday and all the best in the New Year.
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi everyone. I'm not sure this is the right forum for this… I was curious to know if anyone has tried the oil that Ikea is selling, called Behandla (for their kitchen tops). The reason I'm asking is that now back in France, I've discovered that Danish Oil (along with many other things, like...

    Shelf Design As one of first, very simple projects, I'm going to make some shelves in the bedroom closet (which is oddly shaped). So I have some newbie questions. I'm concerned about the smaller shelves to the right. These shelves will hold shoeboxes and folded clothing. I'm wondering if...

    My woodworking goal: to never have to (default on) buying furniture again... As a hobbyist, I had to set a goal to justify to myself why the time, energy, and money (fun can't just be the goal) is a worthwhile expenditure. I set the goal to grow high enough in skill level, so that any piece of...

    On deck... Winter is here, which means the motorbikes have been winterized and garaged, and there is once again time for some woodworking. However, in order to do that, I have to move the motorbikes out of the garage every time I go to work. Small price to pay for having all the toys, though...
  19. Finishing
    I apologize if this has been asked before, but I'm curious if you can stain veneer before putting it on a work piece? It's all flat surfaces, nothing fancy, just a box. Is it possible to apply some stain, let it dry for a while, and then put the veneer on? It's PSA veneer, so I don't think...
