Create a Large Mobile Workstation with Built-in Storage out of IKEA Bookshelves and Some Board

Create a Large Mobile Workstation with Built-in Storage out of IKEA Bookshelves and Some BoardNeed a big space to work? Need lots of storage? Need to be able to move it easily? This IKEA hack from Panyl—a company that's turned IKEA hacking into a business—can provide all three.

Because the workstation (pictured above) is so large, it's not that cheap. Of course, you could make a slightly smaller version and cut your costs significantly. Here's what Panyl says you'll need:

(6) 2 x 4 IKEA Expedit bookshelves @ $89.99 each = $540
(10) 4" industrial casters @ $3.00 each = $30
(1) 8' x 10' x ⅝" plywood, ripped in half @ $20 = $20
(1) 10 'x 4' x ½ hardboard sheet @ $20 = $20
(1) 10' x 4'x ¼ opaque white acrylic sheet @ $250 = $250
(30) 1 ¾" drywall screws @ $0.10 each = $3
(16) Assorted Simpson ties @ $1 each = $16

If you've got the space and need the storage, it's definitely a cool workstation that doesn't seem any harder to put together than your standard IKEA furniture. For in-depth instructions, hit up the full post on Panyl's blog.
