Well I purposely cut it off and framed the bottom out so to me it is properly done. I found that it looked better to stop early than cut the tiles and given Iím the person looking at it every day I did it the way I liked it.

Anyone have a guide for making a corner desk from ikea countertops?

I do not but Iíve noticed my Home Depot has started carrying butcher block desk kits where you can buy from two sizes of top and a few options for what they go on. Seemed all pretty affordable.

I actually have 4 laptops on my desk and I have considered using a magazine rack in the past.
Main laptop is docked and I remote into corporate laptops issued by clients A, B and C.

I am curious how a corporate client large enough to mandate an issued laptop also does not have security policies that disallow being remoted into. I havenít been able to do that myself so itís nice that you can.

This is how I've been working for a while.

Laptop on a stand, then a 32" 4k monitor with a 1440p window remoted into my work VM. Other crap (slack/zoom/browser) arranged around it.

It works quite well for me.

why is the husky adjustable workbench so revered? Itr's a freaking hand crank tool bench with a crossbar that costs as much as a proper standing electric adjust desk

It's definitely not the same price. 62" husky is 250 USD and anything electric with roughly the same dimensions is north of 500 USD from what I've seen

Affordability/value and the thick rear end solid wood top is what sold me. Granted I don't use the crank that often since I misplaced the bit for my drill in my recent move, but it's a really high quality attractive desk. Think I paid $299 for the 72"

The Husky goes on sale semiannually, which make it a better bargain.

I find no need to transition back and forth enough to justify the increase of price, but my wife sometimes complains and doesn't fully raise and lower it so it's definitely something to consider.

I'm sorry I have only just noticed it on my diy trips.

Sidenote: I have a tractor supply I should go to instead of Home Depot, but they charge triple for hardware and fasteners.

lovely phone pic, added a 34" on top of the 38" :sun:

I was sceptical about having a flat 34" stacked with a curved 38", but it seems okay for now.

I play EVE :downs:
Left monitor generally has discord + spotify, top monitor is new so I haven't really landed on anything concrete yet, but so far streams/youtube/series etc end up there while I'm doing other stuff. The 38" is for whatever I'm focusing on, FPS/MMO or what have you. Right monitor is for irc/jabber :v:

I also WFH a few days per week, still trying to figure out the best combination (can't use all 4 anyway).

Work is remodeling and consolidating buildings so they told people to take home the extra chairs. Donít mind if I do, I needed a proper office chair for this desk anyways since I moved my current one down to the basement desk.

I've kind of followed this thread for a while, and have been refining my own workspaces a lot over the last couple years, and I feel compelled to ask why it seems like so many people are sitting so close to their monitors. In a lot of these pictures the keyboard and mouse are sitting right in front of the monitors, and it just makes my neck and back hurt imagining using them in that position.

Is this a result of being habituated to laptops or something? For ergonomics I keep my monitors just over an arm's length away, and consider a keyboard tray an absolute necessity.

I guess I should've clarified that in many cases the keyboard tray/drawer is necessary to be able to have the proper distance from the monitor and keep the desktop at a usable height with the keyboard at a good typing height. On a big enough desk at the right height I can see not needing a keyboard tray.

I WON A CONTEST IN TG AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS CUSTOM TITLE

I keep my keyboard/mouse in front of my monitor but also the monitor roughly an arm's length away, I like having the space between for documents or whatever I'm working on. This does need a deeper desk than some people can fit admittedly (my current desk is 60cm deep).

Never liked keyboard trays, the height difference always felt wrong and got in the way if I had to flip a page in a book or something. If you're working with limited space though you do what you gotta do.
