Mac Lack Ikea Hack
Materials: Lack Side table, Apple G5 access panel
Description: I'm always on the lookout for creative ways to repurpose old Mac gear.
When our old quad core G5 workhorse breathed it's last breath I decided to craft a project that combined two of my favorite things: Apple and IKEA.
Since in middle school I've drooled over the IKEA catalog and dogeared countless pages of their offerings of modern style for the every day consumer.
Their popular Lack furniture lineup is the epitome of minimalism- in aesthetics, function and (of course) cost. I chose to start with the Lack Side table because it would frame the G5 inlay nicely ... plus at $9.99 it was a low risk option if met with a runaway Rotozip.
Details and notes about the Mac Lack Hack are available on my blog.
