I decided it would be nice to have a permanent home for my Technics 1200s, especially since I snagged another set off Ebay for a great price. This way I can keep my custom set
(complements of http://www.djhenraycustoms.com) packed up and ready for gigs.
I checked out a couple of YouTube videos and browsed through a few IKEA Hacker sites to get some ideas.
IKEA shopping list:
1- Kallax Bookcase
1- Linnmon Table Top
1 - Ekby Jarpen shelf
1 - Capita 6" 4/pack legs
1 - Capita Brackets 2/pack
1 - BJÄRNUM Folding Bracket
Extra 2" x 3/8 hex bolts w/nuts and washers from the hardware store
Drill - Butterfly bit
Sharpee (used silver for dark wood)
Assemble Kallax bookcase and lay it horizontally
Remove the base of the Capita legs and drill a hole for the 2" hex bolts(these will anchor the legs to the Kallax)
Measure center points to help align Capita legs
Drill holes in Kallax
Attach legs to Linnmon..adjust height as needed
Attach Capita plastic caps with bolts to the Kallax
Set Linnmon with attached Capita legs into Capita plastic caps
The Ekby Jarpen shelf is the same size as the Linnmon table top, so measuring and aligning the brackets is simple.
Attach Capita brackets to the underside of Ekby Jarpen shelf(the screws are longer than the depth of the shelf so they will show a little)
Drill holes in Linnmon table top for Capita bolts
Bolt Capita brackets to Linnmon table
I also purchased 2 Billy bookcase and another Linnmon desktop to build a working space where I can keep attach a 22" monitor, controllers, drum pads and other stuff.
Of course I had to test out the stability
Using IKEA parts and some creativity there are tons of inexpensive options that you can use to build a nice DJ sanctuary.
