    I wouldn't go rushing out just yet, just thought you might like a heads up!
    On a related note, I'm looking to secure my two Expedit's together, what would be the best way? Brackets?
    I'm going to add a shelf to the top and put some legs on the bottom and need it to be secure.

    This is a coincidence I only just bought another 4x4 shelf yesterday.

    Is there another line of record shelves out there after these have been discontinued?

    Yeah theyre releasing some which are exactly the same as expedit apparently. Doesnt look as sturdy though. Much less wood used to make it.

    IKEA trying to save money imo.

    Doubt it will be any less sturdy and looks 99% the same. Hopefully they don't increase the price though.

    I don't think the originals have any actual wood in them.
