"Where Andreas Bhend's recently-seen IKEA hacks included instructions à la the Swedish furniture giant's pictographic booklets, Bernier has seen fit to customize a part of the whole. But if they're disparate yet equally creative approaches to DIY making, perhaps the next step is for the two to join forces: Andreas, if you're reading this, we'd love to see you guys collaborate on a series of IKEA hacks with bespoke 3D printed parts and instructions..."

That's exactly what we did.

I was able to find all of the relatively obscure fasteners listed here on fastenal.com.
Pro-tip obtained from hours of googling: the "m6 30mm screw sockets" are called "pull dowels" in the US or "round coupling nuts" if you are going to buy them from China.

are the files for the lamp shades posted anywhere?

I tought stuff tagged as work in progress was unpublished untill finished. My bad.
