Hooray! They're a lovely size. Very handy.

"But, Dinah," I hear you cry, "where will I store all these pieces?"

;) That's the life changing magic of tidying up... Flip them over and Konmari your drawers!

Now doesn't a stealth roll like that spark joy?

My local Ikea has 109 of the Grasidan. I'm off today - with a tile wall...thank you, Dinah!

*head meet palm* Naturally, the simplest solution works well.

That's a nice build there too! This definitely does make it easier for me. I likely will still add some elevation pieces but that does make it easier to branch out a bit more with other stuff.
1. Go to Home Depot. 2. Buy 2" thick insulation. 3. Buy a HotWire Foam Factory jig table
4. Cut the 4x8' pieces in to 4"x4" / 8"x4" / 12"x4" / 8"x12" and some 1'x1', 1'x2' and 2'x2' pieces. Some other sizes as you wish. Store. These will raise your DwF to just about the right height. If you don't want to buy the jig table, you can get one of their hot knoives and to it by hand...less accurate, but thyes are rise blocks. Cheaper than the really cool blocks from Japan, but not nearly as precise.

Nice sleuthing Dinah :)

Cheap elevation and storage, if only DF thought of that ;)

So when does the IKEA restraining order get lifted ?

In other news - UK IKEA does not stock GRÅSIDAN and the TJENA has bigger dimensions :(

Aaah, this is amazing! I have the foam blocks but storing them is an issue, this is the opposite of one! I may be able to find someplace to put all my Caverns Deep after all, lol. Thank you for the research! \o/

GRÅSIDAN are great!

Only a really silly person would bring a few DF pieces to Ikea with them just in case, but the silly bird gets the worm or something like that. :D

Looking forward to getting my hands on the GRÅSIDAN set to confirm it works, because it's in 2" dimensions and should give even more options.

Dinah
Very nice!
