New Workbench
This is my new workbench, which is an Ikea-hack. It consists of two Vika Alexes (watch me assemble them here), a Vika Amon desk top (150cm long), a modified 4-by-2 Expedit and two Tertial lamps. I rearranged the internal shelves of the Expedit. As designed it comes with three long widthways-running parts and four short parts that go down the middle to form the square pigeon-holes. I rotated two of the long parts so that they run lengthways. They meet in the middle at the third long part, which I cut flush with the bottom and screwed to the top with right-angled brackets. I trimmed the dowels by scoring them with a blade and hitting them with a hammer. The whole is attached to the desk top with brackets.

Watch me assemble two (count them, two) Ikea Vika Alexes simultaneously.
