Ikea’s usefulness extends to budget modular synth cases
Ikea’s massive stores are furniture havens for people looking to spruce up their homes for cheaper prices. Unintentionally, the retail giant now doubles as a great place for DIY discount DJ gear as well. A few months ago, DJ Puzzle of Los Angeles demonstrated how to build a sturdy and chic DJ booth out of parts from the store’s furniture items. It turns out Ikea merchandise is also primed to make modular synth cases as well. In a recent post by an Ikea hacker, the author demonstrates how he made a perfectly functional case using three of the company’s Enudden toilet roll holders and a couple metal crossbars. As opposed to the upwards of $150 that one would normally spend on a pre-made case, building one for fewer than $80 out of Ikea parts is quite a steal. Perhaps the next hack we’ll see is an actual synthesizer, who knows?
