I actually spent much of my working life building custom made furniture from scratch using the very best materials, so I'd like to think I know a bit about quality and value. Also hate to say this but these days the average punter these days has little or no skills like our parents who worked "At the tools" had. Some folk who, very intelligent, educated etc etc do not know one end of a screwdriver from the other. Even many "tradesmen" today lack basic skills with a plethora of electric hand tools which are supposed to make work and DIY within anyone's capabilities.
Anyhow a thumbs up for IKEA.
