Guess what? We’ve got another #PandemicProject in the bag! I think that makes five projects during the pandemic and six total this year... renovating Nathan’s bathroom, repainting Nathan’s bedroom, refinishing the patio table and chairs, front door bench, bathroom shelves, desk, and now this... 


We started with an IKEA 2x4 Kallax cube set and we plopped it down in the garage.


We sized up some boards that we stained and polyurethaned last weekend and clamped them down.



Then I took the massive 3.5” hex bolts that apparently do not exist anywhere but in Swedish custom furniture kits (including Menards, which is quite the feat) and drove them through the new birds and back into the cube set.


Then I completed assembly.


We moved them back in the house and all was right with the world. Would you call that a “wrap” or a “surround” or a “Kallax burrito” or what?
