Updated: 20 Jan
The votes are in and a big congratulations to imchaser, creator of the Knuff transformable coffee table! It was a clear winner with 25% of votes, while the Frosta X came in second with 14% and the  Expedit extension next with 13% of votes. The Trunk Bar edged over the Karlstad sofa for fourth place with just 2 votes. What a close fight.

Thank you everyone who voted and made your choice known. Like one commenter said, we did have a bounty of good hacks in 2012 and it was a tough to choose just one. In the end, the originality and creativity of the Knuff hack won the day. Kudos, imchaser.

Prezzies! Yay!
Bragging rights aside, the winner gets to play with PANYL and their hundreds of colors and organic, life-like woodgrains.

The winner gets a choice of either:
a) A fully customized ODDA 3-drawer dresser (including the actual chest, which be will prePANYL for the winner using their newest custom “HackPack” concept. (This prize would be USA only).

b) $200 in PANYL gift certificates, which could be used towards merchandise and global shipping at PANYL.com.

If you’re unsure what PANYL is, check out their website.

Till next year!

    Tremendous making of the coffee table. I really like this . is the table top made from solid wood?

    • Imchaser Ken says:

      The magazine file is made from plywood. Its more solid than u think it will be. If a glass table top can take the weight so is two layer of plywood… LOL. Thanks for liking!

    I knew the Knuff was it from the moment I saw it. Still, the Frosta hack made me think a long time before casting my vote. Congratulations to the winners — it was a tough field this year.
