hack bedside tables into music studio racks





paul from the uk has been hacking ikea furniture for years to use in his music studios. the rast bedside table makes a snug rack for music machines.

music studio racksmusic studio racks“over the years i’ve used their tables recut to make groovy desking, their tv stands to make drum machine plinths, but the main use i have at the mo is that every desktop rack unit i use is made from the bog-standard £9 ikea rast bedside table!

i usually drop the lower shelf a little just to fit more rack units in, but that’s pretty easy. a couple of strips of racking later and they just fit a 19″ rack module perfectly!”

  1. Freakin’ genius! $15 table & $10 worth of rack rail = the same as $150 specialty product. Or how about a combination of the Corras table & the Vika studio setup featured on this site?

    Awesome!

    Why didn’t I think of that?

    Hi, so great to find you. I am starting my work at Ikea tomorrow. I am a recent college graduate and maybe turning my job at Ikea into a career. i was just wondering how nice it is to work at Ikea and if there is chance for advancement.

    Oh yeah,it’s great.
    Just mind the screws when put those rack ears in place – pre-drill the holes to avoid cracks – the tree on those Ikea racks is quite thin.
    I use a couple of those for a couple of years.

    Is that a 10 string Chapman stick?
    ZOMG!!!

  6. Pretty damn cool article, I built my Studio desk from scratch using a hacked Ikea pc tower and some boards from B&Q it’s huge and mobile. Nice to see other people doing the same.

    Hi everyone !

    Inspired by this article (I hope the object isn’t copyrighted !), I decided to make my own.

    It worked, even if I didn’t succeed to find where to buy the rack bars for the screws !

    I found another way to fix my stuff.

    Everything is detailed on the following tutorial (it is in French, but many French people know the post I’m curently commenting ; otherwise, use google translate or your imagination with the photos !) :

    Thanks a lot for the idea !

    Where can you purchase the rack rail? I’m interested in doing this and would love to see a parts list.

    even cheaper than rack rail … just take 1″ strip of Pine wood and glue/screw into place as a substitution for rack rails.

    You can then use metal/ wood screw to secure your rack equipment.

    Can you actually play that Chapman stick? Now THAT would be truly impressive.

    Is it a Chapman Stick? Or is it made from one of these? http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/20091787/
