The “Lack Freischwinger” is a compact, easy to build table suitable for exhibitions or displaying of artifacts. The Freischwinger is built is such a way that the two LACK tables can still be used as they were intended to be used. With some zip ties, lasercut technology and a few screws the table is assembled.

IKEA items used: 2x LACK Table, 1x TERTIAL Lamp, 1x FIXA Cable management

Step 1 :

Put together two Lack tables, as displayed in the assembly instructions. Choose your own colors. Watch out for this: Screw the legs in tight!

Step 2 :

Stack the two tables as shown on the image. Secure them together with some zip ties. Use two in either side for extra stability. Pro Tip: If your zip ties are to short, just put two or more of them together. This worked even better for us!

Step 3 :

Now it’s time to design the tabletop. If you have a laser cutter you can use our sample.

If not you can just cut it by yourself, by using the measurements in the pdf. We used 3mm MDF to create two similar boards. By using 5cm wood slats as spacers you get a super rugged construction which can be secured with four screws. For detailed pictures of this, head to the gallery.

Step 4 :

For lighting your tabletop we recommend any desk lamp. If you need a new one for this construction why not shop at Ikea?

Step 5 :

Voilà! You build yourself a cheap, but not so cheap looking table for exhibitions, your art gallery or as a presentation table. Add things like power cords, security wall mounts or painting that suits your needs! Also, don’t forget to send us your creation to [email protected]
