IKEA Gorm PEDDLEBOR'D!

For about £5 and a Mars, and in less than an hour, you can peddlebord while you IKEA!



I saw this on another website a while back and thought, fuck this, i need something to sort out my wiring disaster. So, on my first ever trip out to IKEA, i got 2 Gorm shelves, and two short slat things that are on the same shelf thing as the Gorm shelves in IKEA. IKEA!!!

So anyway, here's a little photoessay on how to IKEA.

Step 1. here's what i'm starting off with. I went for the longest gorm shelf that IKEA do. It's a bit shorter than a metre, maybe 80cm? (that's about 3 foot for you backwards folk.) and the short slat things are probably about 55-60cm.



Step 2. Mark it out. I positioned my back support on the back horizontal piece of the shelf about 15mm from the edge. It gives a good pitch on it, and provides good structure. if you're handy with woodworking, you could probably cut the slat thing in two and make two side pieces, but i like where it is, cos i'll hide my plugs in there (boss adaptor, whammy, etc.). I just used a standard 2B pencil for it. I sharpened it with a stanley cos i couldn't find a sharpener. You could probably use a HB pencil if you were stuck.



Step 3. L Plates. The wood is really soft, and i was feeling moderately lasy and annoyed after blowing the inductor on my DV. So, i used my old trusty stanley knife for a pilot hole. you should get an L Plate with the upright thing. You only get ONE though (WTF!?). So you might need to either buy a second set of uprights, or buy another L plate. I think i paid €4 (£4) for the upright, so it's not exactly expensive. An L plate might actually cost you more. Screw them in place. I did the upright first.


Step 4. Do the same with the Main shelf thingy. That's basically it. You can do whatever else you want with it from there. I plan on putting something grippy on the top and then painting it black and copper. But for the moment, you can see how it works. For example, here, i'm hiding a 2m cable underneath while i connect my shoe to my unfinished DV with plenty of space for an assembly manual. There's loads of space underneath for plugs, cables, and maybe even a McTasty. Total build time, maybe 45mins?

I'm pretty sure I linked to the original build diary. Where's my meddle?

im all out of meddle. Will you settle for cookie? I would have thought that having all those pictures of nice scandinavian timber would have made up for it?

Nice. I might do something similar, and also build one of those things which you can stack amp heads on. That's something that I've been meaning to do for a long time.

It's so easy. I think i'm going to add a little box to just underneath it for regulating the power from the 9v adaptor to the pedals. could be awesome to mount a tuner or something too. lol! going to put eighty seven percent across the back part too.

Now that looks like win, i hope the nearby Ikea's have gorms. i have some tapes of some kind of anti-slip stuff, (for stairs and stuff to not fall on your ass and break the dildo in half in your anus) i tape some rolls of it on the thing, maybe that could pass as some kind of quasi-velcro (i never saw velcro here)

well this is a plan for the future, my next two months are reserved for other things.

that's the one. And the uprights should be with them. Like if they're shelf 23 in ikea, the uprights will be shelf 24.

Don't paint it black - it needs a tennis ball fuzz finish like that ritter bass although, I'm not sure how velcro would take to it ... unless it's actually velcro-like itself


joined your facebook group btw - those enclosures look great
