Description: Since space is very rare in my flat I made a small workbench that is hidden in an IKEA-shelf. I combined a folding table and an IKEA shelf. Then I added some small cabinets with drawers and an adjustable lamp. I had to add some heavy stuff to the bottom of the shelf to prevent it from toppling over.
Old computer displays and scanners that haven’t been ripped for parts yet are very convenient.
Now I have a workbench that’s big has a decent light and can be put away very easy when not in use.
