My son finally deserved a desk. He’s a Transformer fan, and I had some Lack shelves to be recycled. The structure is made of Broder rails and cantilevers, the desk itself with the shelves, silver and red, in perfect “transformer style”. The height of the working surfaces can be changed following child growth. (Please note that “Lack” and “Broder” items can be named differently in your country).

I bonded the shelves toghether with a screw bar tightened by nuts. Note how the bar fits in an existing channel (if you ever mounted a Lack you know what it’s for), so you don’t have to drill much. Then I screwed the shelves to the cantilever. The result is sturdy enough, I climbed on the desk just to check.

The front edge has capped nuts, and it looks pretty neat.

  1. Saw your hack in Ikeahacker blog. Very cool. I love the hacks were people repurpose their ikea stuff. And I am sure your son is proud of his new desk!

    1. His desk is always a mess and he does his homework on the kitchen table. Thanks for the comment, I scratched the surface of your blog, but it’s worth a vist in depht. DIY for ever.
