S-Lack coffee table





Materials: Lack TV bench x 2, Lillangen leg frames, drill

Description:
1.) Assemble the Lillangen leg frames
2.) Screw them to the bottom of the top and middle table tops
3.) Install the first side piece to the bottom table as per instructions
4.) Fasten the middle table to the first side piece
5.) Install the second side piece to the top of the middle table
6.) Fasten the top table to the second side piece

Just for kicks, I installed hinges to the second side piece and the top table (see sketch). It will make it easier to clean.

Enjoy

    Very stylish design, I like the clean lines and contrasting colours. Isn’t it wonderful how our pets immediately take their place when the camera comes out? Lovely home.

    Nice idea. Makes me wonder, what if you put hinges on the lower portion as well?

    I love this! We use the same unit as a coffee table, but it’s quite low. I like your idea much better! How did you attach the legs exactly?? I can’t make it out from the photo’s.

      Seems like they did it this way, but i’m not sure

      Looking on the Ikea website here, the Lillangen frames are four legs – on the photo above it looks like only two have been used on each level. Also, as the comment below says, the Lack is indeed thin veneer, so how can the legs be screwed to the top?

    This looks great!
    But, I’ve always wondered how people screw anything successfully into their Lacks. All my Lacks are thin veneer over cardboard folds and air. How does this hold more than a short time?
