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!
I added a cutout to an IVAR shelf, so I didn’t keep knocking myself out! I think it looks good.
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 […]
OK, so I’ve created a few test parts. Firstly in 18mm Birch Plywood, 18mm pine, and also in bamboo (an IKEA chopping board!) Buy them here! I started by cutting the blanks and then added the slots. Cutting the slots in the ends of the lengths, was not the easiest […]
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 […]
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 […]
How good is Ikea IVAR as a desk? I think it’s great for me. Check out what I’ve done so far and what I’ve learnt along the way.
