Ikea fail

Ikea fail

$20 coffee table broke in half rather unexpectedly this evening. Not sure if there was some structural damage from the earthquake, but the thing snapped pretty cleanly — a rarity with any particle board furniture which usually creaks and bends before breaking like this.

The odd thing is that there is a horizontal support bar beneath the top surface. It broke too! And it broke in the vertical dimension, which I can tell you is very rare. Trust me, I have a degree in Engineering.
