Step 4: Roughing it up and putting the glue.

The LACK is made of very slippery material so it is very important to rough up the surface before you glue. Rough up all 4 sides of the middle part, and one side of the other 4 parts. Then put on the glue (strong stuff!) according to the instructions on the bottle. Keep one centimeter free on the top of the middle part. The sideparts are glues 1 centimeter lower then the top of the middle part!
<p>on my gosh there's so few comments on here.</p><p>I wish I had this in my toolbox at least 3+ times, and i have also told 5+ people about it. at least it's in my favorites now.</p>
<p>I'm am peculiar if this IKEA hack was durable in the long term?</p>
for wot is it good for...
Apparently, screwing on more Lack legs.
Nice. We had to assemble a bunch of IKEA furniture at my office one time. This would have come in handy.
Here are some more life hacks <a href="http://howtohacklife101.blogspot.com">http://howtohacklife101.blogspot.com</a>
While this is clever, I would recommend cutting a 2x4 to the size of the table leg instead.
&nbsp;If one doesn't happen to have a spare 2x4, buying an extra LACK end table is nearly the same price as a piece of lumber these days. &nbsp;Plus you've got the extra parts in case of any mishaps.&nbsp;
Hm, well, a 2x4 around here still costs under $2.25...<br />
heck a short 2X2 is cheaper then that in fact cruise a remodeled house / building site get it free. I do not mean steal it, they got tons of scraps all going into dumpsters. <br><br>
To be honest I only used the leg because it is more fun as an ible. Although this way it is totally accurate.<br />
We did a tablescape using the hack-a-lack. It still is the ultimate tool to put these things together. I wonder if a 2 by 4 is the exact size of a lack table leg so just getting an extra table is probably better and it gives you 4 hack a lacks and the table top is available to serve as the bottom part of a lack rack.
Hmmm. <br />
OK, I know this will probaly sound really stupid, but WTF is IKEA???????
a store www.ikea.com
I like the first picture - "Lack and Decker" :-P
We have the tables and will soon start to put them together. I'll upload a film of it.
Reminds me of this..
It is!
You know, I think this is an actual page out of the employee handbook.
i doubt that
Whyyyyyy you gotta be like that?
In any case it should be.
There we go. A sense of humor! yayyyyyyy
I'm serious ; )
lol nice
Clever. Now how about a machine to assemble those @#$%<sup>&amp; bookcases.</sup><br/>
You should design one.
Me to. I'll put one on Flickr as soon as I have one.
1000 tables?!? I'd love to see a picture of that, too!
Yes I love that one!
