Couples Race To Build IKEA Furniture

(YouTube link)

I’ve never dealt with IKEA furniture, but I know for a fact that building furniture, whether it’s from scratch or a kit, is a one-person job. Only ask for help if you need someone to hold something for a minute. I also know that if you buy furniture in a kit, you should add extra reinforcement of some sort. Man, that is one ugly desk these people built.

The other advice I would give about furniture is that you should buy it used, the older the better. You’ll get better quality pieces for the same money. However, you’ll have to pay for it up front and haul it yourself. It’s worth the effort. -via Buzzfeed

I think that's a bit harsh. We've IKEA stuff that's not needed reinforcing, though what we mostly use them for is components. They sell plastic boxes and slides, for example, which can be built into "properly" made built-in stuff. But Rascal Cat is right - use a drill/driver not the little toy you get with it.

yeah, dealing with those allen bolts is a pain. get yourself a bit for your drill and don't use those little allen wrench things IKEA gives you (of which I have about a thousand in my house now)
