Ivar Shelf on Wheels?

2022-09-21 admin 0

I’m considering putting one of my ivar shelving units on wheels so that I can move it about in my workshop. So the simplest thing seems to build a platform with wheels, and add some blocks to “lock-in” the uprights. I’m not sure at this stage if these will be […]

Jus a few more photos of my small (but deep) ivar desk drawer! Note the slightly cut down cuttlery holder to put my pens and things in! – it works a treat!

IVAR Custom Drawers

Installed My Custom Ivar Drawers

2020-07-14 admin 1

I finally (after being able to get back to my office) installed the IVAR drawers I made. They work great. Using the slow close, fully extending drawer runners was worth it I think. It gives me far more storage, and in keeping with what I love about IVAR, it’s flexible, […]

I wanted to maximise the storage on my IVAR, so I’ve started to make some more drawers. As before I wanted to be able to move these around, or completely reconfigure my set up later if needed, so they are made so as to not be permanently fixed. There’s no […]

I’m going to be working at my desk quite a bit, and one thing I found useful on my previous desk, was a shallow drawer under the desktop. It’s a useful space for pens and cables and suchlike. IKEA don’t make anything like this so it was time to make […]

If like me, you’ve wanted to use your Ivar shelves for books, you’ll probably have come across the same problem – the books fall off the ends. So I wanted a simple, but flexible side that would fit into the Ivar shelf mounting pins, but that could be moved should […]

Making a Cupboard for Ivar

2020-01-13 admin 2

Turning some Ivar shelves into a cupboard, was one of my ideas for my new office space. Open shelves are fine for many things, but I wanted to reduce the visible clutter and be able to hide some things away. Ikea don’t make a cupboard for the small 50cm Ivar […]
