The best DIY projects are those made from materials we already own. Even better, when those materials cost us a pretty penny originally and we just couldn't stomach throwing them away. This most recent IKEA Hack takes an ordinary bedroom staple and turns it into a stand for a turntable.
Using Sultan Laxeby Slats
, wood glue and some good ol' fashioned muscle — Scott created this unique turntable stand. Originally the first thing that really caught our eye about this particular IKEA Hack
was the creative re-use of a notoriously expensive IKEA product (though these new and improved slats are definitely worth the price).
Scott measured the turntable and the slats before he started cutting. Once he figured out the length to cut each slat he laid them on the floor surrounding the turntable leaving room for audio ports and the actual turntable itself. He applied wood glue to each slat and held together for 30 minutes by a clamp. He then laid the table on top of interesting steel table legs he found at a thrift store.
