I might be addicted to Ikea. So perhaps it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I’ve been seeing more and more workshop accessories out of ordinary household products that they sell.
I already wrote about the Raskog cart, which is a very inexpensive small rolling caddy. And their Sektion kitchen cabinets inspired another post, about vertically-lifted wall cabinet doors.
But I’m now taking about other kinds of products.
Their Vurm wine bottle holder might be a good 18V-class drill, impact driver, or impact wrench holder. I picked one up the other day, and it can hold a Hitachi 18V impact driver. I might need to modify it slightly so it doesn’t chew up the rubbery overmolding on the Hitachi and other tools. I have some ideas.
Ikea’s Plastis ice cube trays could be quick and cheap part trays. These have decorations, but the ones in-store are available in green with 9 square compartments, or blue with narrow rod-shaped compartments.
Maybe this Grundtal magnetic knife rail can hold hand tools?
Ikea’s housewares are often inexpensive, but well put together. Some of their stuff is cheap, other things quite sturdy.
I’ll be playing around with some Ikea products to see what could possibly work in a workspace, and what cannot. In the meantime, do you have any suggestions? Ideas? Potential storage problems that you’re looking to solve?
