tabletop, NOT a desktop RosemarieI bought this thinking it was an option as a top to the ALEX desk. It hangs right there with other tops for tables and desks , rigth in the desk department of the store. Its meant to go on a table base, I found out when I got home. So it needs to be marked as such. your salespeople also did not clue me in. Now this otherwise handsome tabletop sits on top of my 2 alex drawer units, precariously because it cannot be fastened. do label this as a top for TABLE only and clue in your salespeople. Luckily it was the right size for the 2 Alex units4
VersitileMelissaLove this find. The color and grain are beautiful. Looks and feels and look top quality. Well designed with pre-drills for various leg options, and placement. Very solid feeling, and appreciate that there were multiple sizes to choose from. (Multiple colors as different names as well).5
Adhesive Leaks and stainedMitchellNot the best table top as it comes with darker stains and the adhesive leaks from the side.1
Love itMaryJust as described5
Excellent and Solid DesktopKevinUnlike many of Ikea's desktops the Malskytt is made of a solid slab of particle board. Although particle board isn't the strongest wood material, it's much more durable than the many cardboard honeycomb filled options Ikea has. This desktop is at a very reasonable price as well! It's got some heft to it and has pre drilled holes for legs and securing it to drawers. The desk top is smooth, but has a matte feeling to it. Its texture is similar to the soft touch glass some phones use for their back glass. I'm currently using it on an Alex drawer unit and adilis legs combo and it's working nicely. I just wish wish they had different finishes. Darker wood could look very nice but the current light wood is great looking5

Pretty GoodSavannahThe desk is good. I Love having the option to customize the desk and legs combination. However, in the time that we've had it, the edges that we go over the most (in front of my chest) seem to get really dark and turn sticky. I'm not sure why but it is very inconvenient and I cant get the sticky to go away4
Its nice and sturdyDouglasnice table top , Soon as i figured out which legs to use for the appropriate height i was golden5

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 veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
