Beautiful and toughA PotatoIt's a great shelf, and is very attractive in a bathroom or other area with the light finish to the wood. But assembly can be harder than it looks, as the material is very hard timber, and the ibclused instructions in the box are not the best way to assemble the shelf because of the gap between the edge of the horizontal shelves and where the structure on the verticle sides attaches in the middle of the horizontal shelves. I struggled for a while following the instructions included with the shelf, before giving up trying to do it the right way and assembling it how I do most shelves like this: First, put pegs in the two holes on one side of the two peg-connected shelves (shelf numbers 2 and 4), then attach these with the other holes on the other side against the floor, and place the vehicle side brackets horizontally across the top. Tap the spot above the pegs with a soft mallet, or a hammer with some of the spacer cardboard structures on top of the wood where you tap, to protect the wood. It should kind of be like a table now, with the two pegged shelves as legs and the side brace as the top. Using the two pegged shelves as stabilising legs, you can then slide the odd-numbered shelves into the grooves in the side brace (which is horizontal), and then attach them with the screws. You may need to pull together or push the horizontally-placed brace very gently to get the screws to line up and bite into the pilot holes, and I recommend you go along the six screws and get them pre-bit slightly into each pilot hole before going over them again to fasten them down securely. Then flip it over, and repeat for the other side. You definitely need the black plastic extension for the key tool, or a drill will good torque, as the timber is very tough like most pine pieces from IKEA. I like these pieces for this very reason, as it means they will last longer than the laminate stuff, and you can put your own finish or paint on them. But it does mean that you will sweat a little while assembling it if you don't have a drill, or you're not very experienced with the solid wood pieces from IKEA. If the instructions were better I would give this five stars, but just FYI if you struggle or haven't assembled many IKEA pieces before.4

Clean LinesCountrycuzGlad we returned after the [November] store evacuation to chase this item up as it sits perfectly in the bathroom space. It also suits our country-style, slightly rustic decor. Considering a second one, or something similar in the natural birch, when time and budget allow both a return to the city and Ikea. The joys of country living! Patience.5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

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. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

What is solid wood?

Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
