The IKEA Guitar was made using recycled IKEA furniture. This guitar was built by Tchiks Guitars from Brussels and documented on social media.
The IKEA Guitar uses parts from the Swedish furniture company. The ingenious guitar build was documented showing how and what was used to complete the guitar.
Named the VECNA, this guitar was all handcrafted in Brussels using wood, MDF, paper and glue.
It features a guitar neck made from a STUVA cot and the body used the HENRIKSDAL chair, plus a LACK shelf. The fretboard was made using an MÅLERÅS picture ledge and fitted with 24 frets.
An APTILIG chopping board was utilised for the guitar’s two control knobs. Finally, the output jack plate was made using the LILANGEN door handle and a set of strap buttons from a KALLAX insert knob.
