    Angry Fuck ikea

    A few months back I bought one of those big Ikea Kallax units for my study. I'm moving so decided to dismantle it and the shitty wooden pegs keep snapping off inside the unit.

    I've googled it and spoken to Ikea (and although they are aware it's an ongoing issue) no one can help me get these damn pegs out.....

    I've tried:

    Shimming the pegs with pliers
    WD40
    Drilling a nail into them and using the claw of the hammer to attempt to pull them out
    Drilling them out.....

    NOTHING IS FUCKING WORKING!!!

    I'm pretty much sat here in tears with a shitty half dismantled unit that I'm about to set alight....

    Any ideas?????


    Last week in Wexford....catch me whilst you can

    I dont think youre supposed to take them apart after you 'build' them, a bit like a condom, use once only

    yeah have to agree, they are generally a once off build. but if you have your heart set on keeping them I'm sure you would have no problem finding a guy willing to give you a hand with them
