We had a number of our artists, technicians and hobbyists request a greater work area on upper portion of the Ikea Raskog cart. Taking a cue from the old style sewing machines we created this fold-open topper. It is currently used in art studios, hospitals, salons and of course in the home. It's meant to be heavy duty and comes in at about 7lbs. (3.2kg)
This custom piece is made of a solid 3/4 inch Baltic Birch Hardwood base and the two fold open tops are made of +1/2inch Baltic Birch Plywood (not mdf, chipboard or other cheap wood based material). Baltic Birch is often used in the construction of high-end furniture and we choose it because it's strong, resists scratches, offers a beautiful finished edge and built to last.
► Hinges: These 4 high quality steel hinges maintain a solid and level worksurface.
'Fold-Open' Position - 33 inches x 12.5 inches (84cm x 32cm)
'Closed' Position - 16.5 inches x 12.5 inches (42cm x 32cm)
Weight - 5 pounds (2.3kg)
► Use Another Marker/Pencil? Because we build these one-at-a-time we can modify it based on marker type, application, etc. There is no charge for most of these modifications.
We are a small family-owned business with a mission to create unique designs with the highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship. All of our products are and-made one-at-a-time in our studio in Cobourg, Ontario, Canada.
