Rack for your Pc/Hi-fi system

Materials: 1/2 Ikea Lack (small), 2 Ikea Lack (medium), 1 box Ikea Capita (16cm, 4 pcs), glue

Mount Lack one over the other (start with medium Lack). Use little shelves as base, and the other using capita legs as in photo.

You can also use a small Lack under the shelf on the floor to enforce it. (but it’s not necessary if you don’t plan to use it with heavy items).

Use glue or similar between legs and the respective base (and so for capita legs)
if you need more space, you can add another lack (medium or small, depends on your needs).

    I’ve had my hi-fi on a similar set-up using just the small square Lack tables for a couple of years – I used blu-tack between them – holds them really well, but is useful if you need to move them.
