32 Year Old Billy Bookcases? [member edit]





In this one I’m continuing to remodel my home office, this time with #Ikea #Billy bookcases that are 32 years old, and as well as explaining why, I take you on a detailed tour of the whole process, including the best way to pull a Billy bookcase apart for reuse, and a simple jig to keep shelf heights consistent!


No, I’m not turning into an #IkeaHack channel, but sometime you need to take the path of least resistance just to get things done. Enjoy!

Hey Peter, just love the way you rattle these together. Re-purposing like this is definitely the way forward with board prices the way they are, brilliant mate.

Solid work on those book cases and a great example how someone could upcycle something they migh have just tossed out. Color is very good! Interested in seeing the cabinet you make for the new table saw...

Cheers Paul! Yes, pleased with how they worked out - even if it was probably more work than just making them from scratch! 😂👍
