The Gorm Shelving System from Ikea is a unique offering - it's made of real fir, rather than Ikea's might-as-well-have-invented-it laminate-coated compressed fiberboard recipe. Cool, but the downside? Sometimes softwoods simply ain't straight, and your Gorm ends up a little crooked.
No worries, says Randofo. I'll just make a bench outta it.
