This is very old, but a great website! It might inspire a few of us to start an ikea weekend project 😎 🔨 Thanks for sharing @enderdoon

@gregoiregilbert yeah it seemed pretty old but wasn't posted before. I heard about it on NPR (yeah really early adopter :-P) and then looked it up. I like IKEA products (the instructions are terrible though) but after hearing about the Hacks, realized that because they standardize all their parts, a creative mind could create products completely outside the context of the original instruction set. I like unintended creativity. :-)

@gregoiregilbert Yep. I am heading to IKEA this weekend! Perfect timing to browse through this site.

I've built several IKEA hacks after consulting this site, the content here is gold. Funfact: They were recently hit with a cease & desist order from IKEA so had to bring the site down for a bit, but the community rallied and IKEA dropped the C&D.

FYI, they had an interesting trademark issue with IKEA back in 2014 http://arstechnica.com/tech-poli... and later IKEA backtracked http://www.trademarksandbrandson...
