    Default Ikea Granas Coffee Table become awesome Display Case

    This is what you start up with

    This model of coffee table is unfortunately already discontinued in Canada. They still have the dining table which is similar and could be modified for an even bigger display case... (I picked up the table from the as is section for cheap already but usually its $300 incl 4 chairs) Well keep an eye for used as I found them being offered on craigslist quite often though many of them the glass top tend to be scratched up
    So Figurefreak started lowering the magazine shelf which is as simple as cutting 4 measured cutouts into the legs with a dremel or similar tool
    Added some kind of metal sheet on top of the shelf and closed up the sides with acrylic panels and finished if with a set of Ikea Dioder LED strip lights and VOILA... what a beauty!


    I started mine but have yet to finish my MDF cover and acrylic sides. I am using HomeDepot insulation foam tape to close up most of the gaps to make it dustproof. My latest update.. I doubled the setup using now two of these !!!!!

    it's his TDK setup you see up there but he just never created a separate thread for it so I decided this needs to be out there for others to see and follow. Mine is still the partially done MR MF setup:P

    If you want to follow some instructions
    read the thread starting from this page from ironed as he has his ideas and progress extremely well documented

    Ctually considered getting the Granas for...well dining. Haven't seen the coffee table. That looks great and ditto what was said about wishing for a collectible big enough to make good use of the display. Anymore pics

    Btw you all do realize you could also have a legion of figures in this and it be just as impressive in it's own way right?

    Sure, you can put whatever you like inside …and it will look cool, but probably not all will look best displayed from a bird view.

    Too bad there's no way to conceal the lighting cord.
