IKEA Challenge

Your local IKEA employee @Vincent is opening a new IKEA location and needs your help in stocking his shop with merchandise.

Your task is to produce any piece of IKEA furniture. You may decide either to replicate an existing real piece of IKEA furniture or produce a novel product that is distinctly "Ikean".

Following the tradition of IKEA's self-assembled furniture, you must also submit your item in disassembled form, along with instructions on how to assemble the product, like shown below:

All entires should be made a successor of this post. Feel free to smack the IKEA logo decal provided somewhere on your product.

Entries will be scored on the following categories--

  1. Accuracy: how accurate the model is, or how believably Ikea-styled it is
  2. Detail: how much attention was paid to details that make the product realistic
  3. Assembly: how readily the model can be assembled on my end
  4. Manual: how well made the manual for the product is
  5. Vincent: the resident Swede can give an extra point of approval to your entry if it impresses him

Prizes will be some amount of upvotes and a spotlight for the 1st place winner if possible. Maybe Vincent could feature your kit or something.

Good luck--may the best Ikea employee win.

    @SnoWFLakE0s Hi, I have found a way to make it a successor by remaking it with more sub-assemblies. Will reupload as a successor so ignore the last one 😄

    Oh yeah! I forgot to add a deadline, I'd say two weeks is a good enough margin for decent submissions.

    No way. If putting together furniture is a nightmare. Building it in SP will be pure hell

    I have created a submission here but due to use of subassemblies, it didn't register as a successor :'(. I hope that's ok.
