Lack TV Bench how it should be

Materials: Lack TV Bench and Lack Wall Shelf

Description: I bought the following:
- 1 Lack TV Bench (149 cm)
- 1 Lack Wall Shelf (110)
- 6 GodMorgon legs.

I just put the bottom together as is. Then I just put the Legs between the bottom and top bench. On top of that I placed the Wall Shelf. To support it, I sawed the supporting side brackets of the original Lack into two parts. The legs were just attached to the bottom with a strong tape. The same for the upper shelf. That’s it. It holds whatever components you want. Even big receivers.

    Yeah, I think it is, too. Stick a couple of legs in the middle and you’re set.

      Already have 2 legs just behind the front speaker, approx 6 inches from the back (centered under the TV foot).

    Tror det er like greit å henge opp TV’n på veggen før pappen i Lack-bordene knekker på midten. :)
    Så kan du sette senterhøyttaleren der TV’n står nå.

      He-he. Knekker nok ikke. Tyngden er fint fordelt over ett større areal. Dessuten står det 2 GodMorgen ben midt under platespilleren ca. Og originalen er testet fra Ikea på 50 kg (mener jeg å huske). Poenget var å få mere høyde for komponenter under, samt hevet TV’en litt.

    It may be your lens, but is it not bowing towards the middle?

      No, it’s just the picture. It’s not bending. I have just a long aluminium leveling stick to check it.
