I had my first ever Ikea experience yesterday. Let me say right off that the meatballs were great.

I was surprised to find the Dutch Pullout design on several different tables, such at this one. It operated smoothly and is of a size that one person can easily add or subtract real estate at will.

Since that design has come up now at then here, I thought I’d post this so the curious might check these out.

That’s all. Let’s move along. Nothing else to see here.

Kindly,

Lee

I’ve never looked at IKEA products or bought any.
At those price points it’s no wonder why I can’t
land any jobs.

I find some Ikea furniture to be well designed and well made,for example their kitchen cabinets are very solidly built and durable,I know I installed two of them already. one in my old house that I sold and one in my new house,assembly was easy,and straightforward.the quality fit and finish is as good as above average custom built ones.

I have a little experience with some of Ikea’s stuff. While most of it seems to be well designed, the execution leave a little to be desired.

Have your say...
