    Clickbait! I bet you thought I meant a strat?

    IKEA futon, but one that has actual wood in it. I'm not sure what happened but one of the sides got ripped frombthe screws holding it.

    Waiting for the glue to dry then we're good to go.

    The wood donor is also from IKEA, a storage shelf. I have a bunch of them, heavy as hell and made from solid fir. I'm thinking about maybe building a cab out of them.

    You're really building a Viking longship so that you can go a'pillaging and a'plundering and a'f.... Made from Ikea bits, it might even get you halfway to Copenhagen.
