UPDATE: Commenters note that the Instructable seems to be posted by the same company selling the pricey hardware. The user name is “simplifiedbuiliding” and the parts are sold by “Simplified Building Concepts.” Now we are suspicious. Maybe this Instructable should be called LACK (of integrity) Hack.
This post was originally titled, “How To Transform Rickety IKEA Table Into Sturdy” but then we realized you don’t need to use an old IKEA table, like these people did. In fact, you can use their Instructable for any old table top, or just a good piece of wood you have laying around.
Don’t buy overpriced furniture, make your own, then sell it a high markup. — BEN POPKEN
