Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage I have had this system for over a year, I can't tell you how much stuff it can hold! I bought extra cross bars to support it because my books are very heavy. I had to add another post and shelves, which is nice to have flexibility to add or divided into two units.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nota so good a 30% of the shelves split when I tried to assemble this unit. It's a rough and ready product - made of the same unfinished lumber you can buy at the local reno store - and I would normally build this myself, but needed some shelves in a hurry. As a woodworker of 40+ years, I already had the wood glue and clamps to patch it all up. The beefy #10 (I think) screws are just too big for the pre-drilled holes. They don't need to be that big, the wood will always break first. Either buy a box of #7 or #8 Cabinet screws or look for something else.

Sturdy storage from solid wood

Imagine if you had to walk ten yards and every step you took you had to pay someone some money. Chances are you would probably be planning some big jumps to cover those ten yards without lightening your wallet too much.

Production of furniture works a bit like that too. Every step you take is another cost to add, so if you can cut down on your steps you can make big cuts on the final price. It's this simple formula that helps make the HEJNE shelves an affordable buy. By doing as much of the production as possible in the forests where the timber used to make HEJNE is felled, we can cut down on its price. The result is practical shelving that uses the strength of solid wood to provide unpretentious, sturdy storage for all around the home.

Sourced from sustainable forests

If you travel north in Sweden, you'll begin to notice some differences about halfway up the country. From here you can see the farms thin out, as do the grassy meadows. Even the iconic red cabins start to become more infrequent as the landscape grows into large forests of pine and spruce. If you take a look around, it's easy to see why the Swedes have traditionally relied on timber for warmth, building and making things. It’s from areas like this that the wood for HEJNE is felled. All wood for HEJNE meets the strict IKEA requirements for “wood from more sustainable sources” which is defined as certified or recycled. But being sustainably minded doesn't just stop at the tree. In the case of HEJNE what helps make the shelves more affordable, also makes them more sustainable. The key is to use more parts of each tree and to cut down on transportation costs by doing all the production right where the tree is sourced.

Thrifty thinking

"What I really like with HEJNE is that we've been able to make it in as few steps as possible," says Jesper Gunnerling who helped source the wood used for HEJNE. "The first part is harvesting the timber from responsibly managed forests, and then it’s on to the sawmill." The sawmill turns round logs into square pieces of timber and prices the different sections. “The center of each log is the most expensive part,” Jesper explains. “Then the cost decreases when you go towards the ends where the bark and branches are.” These outer sections of the log are what we use to make HEJNE. Because we're using a part of the tree that's not traditionally used by furniture makers, the price is lower, without losing any of the benefits of solid wood. "There's no difference at all in strength," Jesper says. "But furniture makers don't always use this type of wood because it has these natural markings in the timber where branches have come out from the trunk."

Strong and straightforward storage

The other big benefit of using solid timber is that it's strong. So strong, in fact, that each HEJNE unit can be used to store heavier loads all around the home, like a garage worth of tools, for instance. All that's left after the sawmill is to plane and cut each piece of timber to the right size and that's it. There's no paint (but feel free to paint them yourself) or extra hardware, just practical shelves that use the natural qualities of solid wood to make sturdy storage. Direct from the forest and ready for years of faithful service around your home.
