Bloke saws inside Ikea furniture and is astounded by what he discovers – and he’s not the only one whose mind is blown | The Sun

A MAN has been left stunned after he discovered what was inside Ikea flat-pack furniture.

Astounded by his discovery, he took to social media to share it and people's minds have been blown.

James Sutter purchased the flatpack desk but decided to cut it in half while completing the DIY job.

While he knew it was fake wood, he was surprised to see what it was really made of.

He said: "I always knew that Ikea furniture was fake wood—particle board with a veneer on top.

"Fine, whatever. But last night I sawed into my desk and discovered the particle board *itself* is a lie.

However, James made it clear he wasn't upset by the discovery, just very surprised.

He added: "To be clear, I don't have a problem with this: it's cheap, light, and works. But it was extremely surprising!" He also pointed out that it makes modification slightly more tricky.

People were quick to respond to the Twitter thread and many were surprised to see it was made of cardboard.
