one for the music

when i saw this in audioasylum‘s forum, it reminded me so much of my dad. and the many afternoons i spent helping him saw and drill to make his audio cabinets. now, it’s as easy as driving to ikea.

“just buy an ikea lack side table and screw in some spikes where the legs would have otherwise gone (you can use spike cups if you are concerned about your floor). the table’s dimension is just shy of 22×22. these tables are wood veneer over fiberboard and particle board, which sandwich a fiber lattice honeycomb core. as such, the design is that of a rigid, low mass, rapid energy dissipation support & isolation platform. this is a cheap but outstanding tweak. place your favorite cones between your cdp and platform.”

sounds good to me. read more here.

    While attempting this project, I discovered that the legs of my LACK tables are hollow (capped at either end with 3/4 fibreboard).

    If you attempt this project, be aware you will have to plug the ends of the cut legs somehow.

    I do have a question about this one though. I bought the Lack series for my living room so I have two side tables, the coffee table and the TV stand.

    I'm currently using the TV stand as my A/V rack but it's much too low and too “thin” to acomodate my receiver, DVD, Xbox360, etc. so I've been wanting to build this one instead.

    Now it looks like he actually bought three Tables and used them like so:

    #1: Top unit. Legs have been cut short and “cups” screwed at the bottom.
    #2: Middle unit. No modifications except the “cups” at the bottom.
    #3: Bottom. Legs discarded leaving the top to be used as a shelf.

    Wouldn't that make it three units then, or am I missing something here?

    thanks Jen. initially it started out as a blog to compile hacks but as i went along, well, there were more and more stuff that caught my eye besides hacks. guess i just gotta live with the name now. ;)

  4. You know I think maybe a better name for this blog is IKEA Solutions or maybe catchier IKEA Ideas, some of it isn't as much of a “hack”.

    I love reading it regardless.
