Bois your better off getting a proper gaming desk. They don't sag and they are premium af.

Is the counter top just sitting on the risers? Or is it stuck in.

i bought a 38x80 solid no panel door for $25. gotta cut it to 32x80 then sand it a little bit and paint it. then i bought a 12x72 white shelf for $15 at homedepot for the monitors to sit on using the legs in this video. For the bases ill use 2 sheets of 1/2 inch plywood and create boxes similar to the IKEA Alex drawers. just need the plywood and the legs from amazon then finish and put together.

Your math was off $400 was the total cost... Not $300. You broke it down right so it was easy to know what you meant. Just nice to see as math in my head is not my strong suit :). At $400 it is a bit of a decision, at $300 tho yes you would have to agree that at $300 it's a definite deal.

WAIT!! IS THAT a lumbar support pillow on a Herman Miller embody $1,500+++ dollar chair 😱😱😱😱 creaking sounds and now I see a lumbar support pillow.. Definitely not buying 🤣🤣


Kevin . 3 months ago

may I ask what size drill bit did you use to drill the holes for the legs?

Curtis K

Curtis K . 3 months ago

I am thinking about getting this set up, except I don't want to mount my monitors on the wall. Instead I would like to get a clamp on mount for the back of the table top. Do you think this would be too much weight on the desk considering that the top is not bolted down?

Laura Hovis-Martin

Laura Hovis-Martin . 4 months ago

Did you use wood screws or drill holes with a washer and nut into the Alex drawers?

Diogo Gonçalves

Diogo Gonçalves . 4 months ago

Awesome setup as expected. I've build something like it but I found out that it's a little high for me (being me 1m83) and just getting my arms a little tired. I think I'll just try to cut the risers half and check if it works better


illuminyati . 4 months ago

Do you think I can put legs underneath the ikea alex drawers for the elevation instead of inbetween the counter top and drawers?

Emilio Torres

How tall are you?


Frack . 6 months ago

When your 23 year old desk from office depot that you got when you were in 2nd grade finally takes its final shit. For being all particle board this thing has lasted.

Jason DiLaurentis

Jason DiLaurentis . 6 months ago

Wow I am very surprise after 2 years it doesn't bend.


Human . 6 months ago

This set up i way to high for the average length person. The desk drawers alone are 70 cms high. Add the furniture legs with another 10 cm and you have 80 cms from the floor. That is ergonomicaly to high.


LetsGoBrandon . 6 months ago

why does your 1,500 dollar herman miller embodied chair.. need extra lumbar support?


EricNotEstrada . 7 months ago

Nice setup! Do you think that 5 adils legs will support this countertop?
