My Desk Set Up

Out with the old and in with the new. Using a temporary old desk since I just moved to the states. Finally got a chance to get my new desk.

Desk top/Countertop – KARLBY Countertop, oak –
Draws – ALEX Drawer unit, gray –
Cable Management – SIGNUM, horizontal, silver color –

Some people have said the links aren’t working, I have double checked them. They are working for me, so maybe its the ikea site and the area/country you are in? I have included the product names exactly as the site for you. Hope this helps, any questions, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

Shadowfox1198 says:

Do you find that the center is susceptible to bowing out if you lean on it? I’m thinking about doing this kind of setup

Njords says:

yo if you ever read this, may i ask if you screwed the drawers and the desk together or did you just put the table top on and left it like that?

nickk sharma says:

What the size of desk

Robert Mielke says:

I used to build my computer desks in similar fashion. I would buy 2 filing cabinets with different drawer configurations and slap a hollow core door on top of them. Not only was it modular but setup and tore down in a few minutes. Moving the lightweight hollow core door top away from the wall a bit allowed for easy access to wiring.
