Perfect for my crafting toolsAndrewI was skeptical about wether or not this box would be able to handle the weight of all of my crafting tools loaded inside of it but it was on sale so I gave it a try. It is fantastic and sturdier than it looks.5
Cute but may have QC issues?Amy W.I put together the box as directed. Tools aren’t included and you need a straight and a Philips screwdriver (both at the same time). It took about 30 minutes and was easy, the longer than I expected. The biggest con for me is that it did not end up straight, so the two little boxes on the top don’t line up exactly. There were also some rough areas, splintering, and a couple holes that needed a bit of wood chipped away. I will probably keep it anyways, but it was disappointing for the price.3
Great gift, 2waysSHERRIEGave these to my daughter as a sewing box and to my grandson as an art box. Decided to leave unassembled so they could first approach it as an art project. They love them and they are so functional.5

On Point!SonseeaharayI snagged this tray when it was on the family discount. What a steal! It was easy to put together and it looks great on my Ikea desk.5
Looks like a mid century sewing boxKATVery handy box. This design has been around for a while - tool boxes, mid century sewing boxes. It's also a neat blank slate opportunity for adding your own style. You could add legs/feet, stain the wood, stencil, etc.5
Good DealRobinA little pricey but high quality.5
Love itANSAMI bought it for my daughter cause she’s been asking for it and she loved it so much.5
once you have attached someVictoriaonce you have attached some of the moving arms, the angles get trickier as you assemble. Also the surface is rougher than I like, and sanding it lightly did little to change the surface. I was worried about sanding through the veneer. It did however take spray paint very well and now I have my custom "useful box" for my sewing odds and ends.4
Desktop OrganizerFREDI love it. I don’t use it as a desktop organizer. I use it to hold all of my prescription medications. It keeps them in one place and makes them easy to find.5
Perfect for storing art suppliesASHLEYMy 9 year old artist uses this for storing her art supplies. Given the fact that it's a blank canvas she painted it to make it her own. Best buy ever.5
Cute boxDianaI love the idea of this box. I was slightly disappointed, for $30 I feel it could have been sanded smoother and the holes drilled a bit better. Otherwise it’s a nice sturdy box.4
I loved mine so muchNaomiI loved mine so much I also got a second one for my husband. Good size and smells good. We will be using a sealer to prevent it from warping.5
Adorable and functionalYvetteFun and functional box for storing all mannner of smaller items. It is a bit tricky to put together (may need a second pair of hands) but once it's together is great. Bottom compartment is roomy. I use it for keeping all my manicure items and it holds a LOT of polish bottles. It is raw wood, so a finish will likely be in its future to protect it, but looks cute as is.5
Super cute and well designed.WendyWe liked it so much we bought a second one on our next Ikea outing. We're already planning to buy a 3rd. Great for craft project or small tool organization.5
Perfect sewing boxMarcy C.Got this for a sewing box for my daughter's 11th birthday. The pieces needed some light sanding and I also used natural colored Danish oil on them before assembling. Looks great and I stocked it with sewing supplies for her. She loves it! Screws need periodic retightening as they start to loosen with use.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.
