IKEA Hack: All-in-One Desk/Chair

posted by Marcus, June 10, 2016 @ 4:46 am

Work­ing on the short film ‘The Warn­ing’ I’ve been spend­ing most of my time either in the com­put­er chair work­ing, or sit­ting around wait­ing for video to ren­der. I bad­ly need­ed a new dual-PC rig — so I could tog­gle between machines — that is also com­fort­able. Some­thing some­where between Darth Vader’s med­i­ta­tion cham­ber and Roald Dahl’s writ­ing chair. What I came up with is the ‘Dahl Vad­er’ dual-PC ‘IKEA hack’ gaming/home the­atre all-in-one chair/desk.

As a con­ve­nient co-ben­e­fit the videos of the build also serve as a more advanced ver­sion of The Mac­a­roni Exper­i­ment

Here are the videos of the build, and what you’ll need to try it your­self:

- 2x Gli­varp extend­able glass tables
— 1x Tims­fors swiv­el reclin­er
— 1x PS2012 dropleaf table OR 1x Besta Burs shelf
— 1m 1 1/4″ (32mm) steel chan­nel
— 4 cas­tor wheels
— 1x truck­load bolts and brack­ets (see video)

  4. Won­der­ful blog! I found it while surf­ing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any sug­ges­tions on how to get list­ed in Yahoo News? I’ve been try­ing for a while but I nev­er seem to get there! Cheers|

    Hmmm… Who reads ‘Yahoo news’? I think Yahoo and Bing are the same thing now any­way.

    I refuse to use Bing because it’s so pushy, always try­ing to take over my brows­er default. I’ve dropped IE as well too. It’s plain crooked and anti-com­pet­i­tive to use one prod­uct (IE) to force anoth­er (BING). ‘Third-line forc­ing’ is meant to be ille­gal.
