About this deal

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. I kind of screwed up with one of the wooden dowels for my Malm bed frame. I accidentally put in in the wrong hole. Unfortunately, before noticing, I also pushed it in with a hammer to make sure it sits tightly.

Some have suggested drilling and screw pull, but i found if I used a smallish phillips wood screw I could skip the whole drill step.

Sandy Saintilus, a professional interior designer and YouTuber, also loved the idea and thought it was a cost-effective way to mimic the look of trendy fluted furniture. For your second picture, put a small screw partway into the dowel, then use any suitable tool (claw hammer, prybar) to lever it out. Failing that, Drill out the dowels The flexible and adaptable construction makes it possible for you to enjoy your KALLAX for many years, even when your needs change or when you move. ​

My inspiration piece was a sideboard from West Elm but it was too broad for my entryway and too expensive for my budget. Account icon An icon in the shape of a person's head and shoulders. It often indicates a user profile. But first-time crafters should be aware that the project requires time and patience, Saintilus said.Get a drill bit slightly smaller than the hole (you don't want to damage the sides) and drill out the broken dowel. Nice and easy, just a little more messy than the first option. Preventing this happening in future? Different wall materials require different types of fixing devices.
