The Ikea desk hack seems pretty sweet for the price, plus ability to customise and can swap parts in and out down the line.Any other cool furniture/workspace hacks that obey the unix philosophy?

>>80347591The hack is that I loaded those parts onto my trolley and wheeled them out without paying

>>80348003it was a part of their paid DIY youtuber/Pinterest influencers campaign; it stuck with viewers and people still talk about it. to be fair, it's a setup that generally cost a bit traditionally and you're able to achieve it (down scale) with Ikea shit. this thread is the outcome of paid shilling kek

>>80348255That's what my desk height is, and mine is adjustable, I want it this way. Is that too much or too little somehow?
>>80348331im 6ft and personally felt it was too highi bought an adjustable desk and set it to 26 inches which I think is perfect
>>80347322its still probably like $150where do i get something like >>80347963 for cheap?
>>80347963A cheaper option is to cut and glue together a couple pieces of 3/4" veneered plywood, making it about 1-1/2" thick, then add some edge banding for exposed edges. This only costs about $60 vs $200+ for butcher block. Pic related

The ultimate desk 'hack' is pallet woodYou can get that shit for free at almost any retail store and if you look around enough you can find some really excellent planks (even shit like red cedar) that make for very aesthetic desk topsplus you learn some basic carpentry skills like joinery and finishing
>>80348622>The cabinets are not using those metal rails but instead is a wood sandwich contraption. Not good cabinets.Yup, they are as cheaply made as possible. Same reason why they have no handles.I saw some people use those ikea "desks" and they had to put an extra leg in the middle to keep it from sagging too much. Absolutely ridiculous.
>>80348622>sanded worktop, only natural wood instead of treated wood>splinters
>>80348691Shove your single speed up your ass, hipster.
>>80348783Kek. Saw that.
>>80348731>I saw some people use those ikea "desks" and they had to put an extra leg in the middle to keep it from sagging too much. Absolutely ridiculous.That's standard practice for really long desk tops. My desk is 200cm long, 40mm thick laminated timber and I still have a fifth leg in the center just to be on the safe side.

>>80348071not him but I also have one of those and use it for an XLR input for desk mic, a dac for my headphones, and a line input for my game console through the guitar port so I can adjust levels so it doesn't overpower pc audio. They are so cheap for this, I don't make music
>>80347322you can buy a board like that at every DIY
>>80347963>don’t buy ikea countertops though, or they’ll sag in a yearthat's probably because with PC setups most of the weight ends up in the middle and you had no support for it in the middleif you're buying cheap shit countertops you gotta know what you're doing

>>80348731the leg comes with the deskbut you dont need iti had one and it was shitnot very deep and i need a lot of space
>>80347322drawers are useless, transparent boxes are where it's at. also what >>80349142 is saying. shit that's sold in IKEA shops in my country is waste of money considering you can buy modular shit for way less in regular shops
>>80348859…or you know, those better quality tables comes with horizontal metal reinforcement bars>>80349001The area that is cut will be structurally weaker though, and how do you deal with the exposed paper meshHow did you even cut it without ripping the paper mesh altogether

>>80347963How deep is that? I kinda wish my desk was shallower but wider, since it feels like there's a bunch of wasted space back there (my monitors are quite close).
>>80349346Lol>>80349268Idk, maybe it's the dust or something?>>80349341Its just leaning against the wall
>>80347453>>80347494My grandfather who is in wheelchair got his legs amputated due to an infection, now he's 50% lighter.Major improvement in speed, compatability and responsiveness, I recommend!
>>80347322Bought this in 2018 best decision I ever made. Being able to stand 30-40% of the work day makes me feel so much better after. Added bonus at night getting lost in a game while standing and you finish then lay in bed and your legs ache like you just had a huge workout. It's a good feeling.
When did ikea become so expensive
>>80348513This is shit compared to a solid wood desktop. Veneered shit requires edges to be sharp 90 degrees whereas on solid would you can apply a noice roundover to all edges and make it so much more cozy to use.
>>80350138IKEA has always had cheap stuff and more expensive stuff. But even their expensive stuff tends to be cheaper than other furniture stores.
>>80347536>that almost non existent leg roomthanks for the depiction of hell, anon
>>80348783b-b-but extra gears are bloat!
>>80349767>>80349767>>80349767Damn; next time I'm looking for a desk I'll think about this. Thanks anon.
>>80347322>middle drawer set memeStop being lazy and just structurally reinforce the desk so it doesn't sag. That way, you can move around freely without having to maneuver around a set of drawers.Like so: https://www.reddit.com/r/battlestations/comments/aabjrn/my_new_setup_instructions_for_sag_proof_98_karlby/
>>80350151You're not wrong, but I prefer edges to just be just slightly rounded which is perfect for veneer. And I like the cost saving with using plywood, and knowing that if I fuck up a measurement or cut it won't cost me hundreds to redo.
>>80348691Sounds like a fast way to waste material and fuck up your power tools, but I've really wanted a hardwood desk and I kinda want to try it. Especially since hardwood is in high demand and inflated through the roof due to kung flu.
ikea modularity and price is truly the best thing on the pc market>>80347963they have a metal pole that goes in the middle of the countertop. literally impossible to sag.
>>80347322>ability to customise and can swap parts in and out down the line.you can do that with almost every desk
>>80351602Does that actually work properly?
>>80351777Yes. You could tap dance on that thing and it won't budge as long as you follow the instructions properly.
>>80349767Did you just say that after a day of standing your legs ache similar to a huge workout. You really need to get out more
>>80348003The hack is to use a kitchen benchtop
>>80348255Most people using the hack also install stands between desktop and drawers that raise the height some.I wonder if there is a hack to make it adjustable height
The best "desk hack" for IKEA is to just buy the fucking drawers only; you only need one or two of them, not three. Go to home depot and get 1/2 or 3/4 inch plywood (the smooth one with a grain, not the shitty one made of wood chips) and have it cut to your specifications. Sand the edges smooth, stain/paint it your desired color, and seal it with polyurethane. Voila, you now have a desk. If you only bought one set of drawers, you can buy plumbing pipe or chain link fence posts for legs. If you're up against a wall, you can just drill an L shape wooden block into the wall and rest one side of the desk on that.I've heard of people just using linseed oil to seal the bare wood instead, but having to oil my desk periodically doesn't seem like a fun proposition for me. Besides, if I spill shit on my desk, I like it to be totally waterproof.
>>80352129One problem: The drawers are not good. They don't use rails and does not open/close smoothly
>>8034960719" i believe is the width its not that good for a desk.>>80347963I have one of those butcher blocks they are not that good if you want width specially if you have a multi monitor setup.
>>80352152Yeah the drawers are fucking trash, I agree. I hit mine with WD40 and they stopped making that godawful screeching noise and got a bit smoother.
Honestly, rather than IKEA, the best cheapo desk hack is to be like that one guy who used those cheap metal garage shelves to build a desk. Upside is there's plenty of places to attach things you can hang your shit on. You can even make a poorfag standing desk using that method.
>>80351833Try it! Standing for 5+ hours a day is tough. My BMI is 25 (technically overweight but not insane by US standards).
>>80351637>waste materialThere will be some scrap left over, sure, but it would be more wasteful if nobody took it>fuck up your power toolsNah, not if you disassemble it properly
I'm interested in getting something like this to replace the cheap feeling IKEA tabletop I have.
>>80352746gotta get walnut butcher block, it's expensive
>>80352700I looked it up to try and get an idea of what I'd have to do and found this:https://fringefocus.com/blogs/news/how-to-make-a-pallet-desk/My worry isn't the disassembly of the pallet, that should just be as hard as loosening the screws with a good power drill. My worry is cutting them all to length and/or width to put it together properly. I know we have power saws, I don't know how good they or their blades are. I am a cheap bastard and I do like the idea of saving shit from the landfill, so it's not like I'm not considering it, I just worry about fucking it up, or fucking myself up in carelessness.
>>80353030That's one of the best parts, anonAs long as you are safe mistakes cost you nothing

>not having the husky worktable from home depot as a deskShit is rated for 200 pounds which is more than enough for most setups. Had some I kea shit a while back and its trash. I'll probably stain it at some point but for 200 dollars on sale its a damn good deal.

>>80347322I bought a 7' solid acacia countertop and then put it on top of two steel filing cabinets.1000x stronger than the ikea shit. I went to ikea first planning to get that setup but when I saw the cabinets in person I knew I wouldn't be happy with them.
I used two and a half ikea kallax bookshelves (two 4x2 and one 2x2) for the base, and some cheap pine cut and glued to make the top. It came up really well with some stain and varnish afterwards
>>80354966Lol look at this guy. Go cope with your Ikea desktop made of particalboard. I'll give you the speakers though I plan on upgrading them within the week. For now they serve my purposes for light video watching and some games.

>7ft husky work bench top from home depot>Trestle leg and drawers from ikeaFeels pretty sturdy but I'll probably add some support in the middle on the back side. Not shown but I also added 5in of depth to the back side of the work bench top surface since it was narrower than the trestle leg. The addition is .5 inch thicker to sort of act as a back stop and also painted white.

How would wood like this be for a desk? Would it sag?https://www.bunnings.com.au/2200-x-600-x-26mm-acacia-solid-oiled-hardwood-project-panel_p8330032I might put it on an electric adjustable bench frame
>>80363619>BowYou use KNEEL
>>80359247Where do you put your knees when you sit at the right bench?
>>80359258>this is a really bad idea. those are sprayed in all kinds of industrial shit chemicals that will give you cancer.That's actually not really the issue anymore, as bromide treated pallets are no longer commonplace (iirc they are outright banned in Europe).The issue is not knowing what they've been used to transport & what could therefore have leaked onto them. However many industries will treat them as single use items, so if you can source single use pallets from a known safe route then you're fine.
>>80357603I've had two of those trustles for desk legs for like the last twelve years. really sturdy, but also really awkward dimensions, can't really put anything useful on them.
>>80364230Well he said the whole point is that pallet manufacturers still secretly add them (or something just as toxic) regardless of legislation.
>>80355517this looks oddly comfortable
>>80347536uh oh you better have a license for this one brosale & possession of sawed-off desktops is punishable under federal law
>>80363619>reddit ikea cabinetsYou fucking soiled it.
Remember loading up an assembled ikea galant desk i bought on craigslist on top of a car and hoping it survived the 4 mile trip back home.Have banged it up a little over the years, few scratches here and there, but it's alright. Not my pic.
>>80348691The ultimate hack is to just buy wood, cut it to length, and screw it together. Screws are crazy good now, you can build decent furniture even if you're a dumbass and never done it before.
>>80353030>My worry isn't the disassembly of the pallet, that should just be as hard as loosening the screws with a good power drill.Pallets are nailed together, so you'll probably want to use a crowbar and hammer to disassemble them.Just make sure you get the ones that have the HT or DH logo on them (heat treated) and not MB (methyl bromide).Before cutting them with a saw, use a magnet to find any nails that might be embedded in the wood. Look up how to use a circular saw (or whatever you have) on youtube to get a good idea, and just keep your fingers well away from the blade.
>>80364466There's no reason for them to do that, though. Very few wood pallets come from Asia, and you don't want to risk your entire container getting sent back to China because the pallets were shit. They do check those things quite thoroughly in customs.
>not integrating 19" rack drawers, filing cabinets, computer cases, cable management panels, IEC connector PDUs and laptop cases into your desk
>>80347322this hack is absolute shit tier. the desk will be way too high for ergonomic working.
I don't understand this thread, why does every single one of you have the same disgusting carpet or whatever this crap is? Looks absolutely terrible.
>>80347536Bro thats a coom cave
I built this one from shit I found at the hardware store. It's nice being able to finish the wood yourself
>>80347963>>80348513>>80349428>>80351602>>80355615>>80355639>>80367696Redpill me on the ubiquity of this shitty ugly all-floor carpet. It looks terrible and is probably a nightmare to maintain.
>>80366750Are you a midget? If anything, that desk is too low. And having to share the same height desk with someone else is going to make things difficult if you're not the same height.
>>80367858Carpet is really cheap and also it hides dirt, Laminate flooring needs to be cleaned way more often
>>80367984Ah, so it's just a cheapo solution, makes sense. Honestly it gives me shudders thinking about cleaning such an area of a carpet, especially if it's semi-permanently attached to the floor so can't be chemically cleaned.
>>80368034Unless you're an American who never takes their shoes off inside, it really doesn't get that dirty
>>80367858>the ubiquity of this shitty ugly all-floor carpetU S A
>>80347322I don't understand how people can spend over 2k on gamer shit and buy this rather than spending like $100 extra on something like pic related. It's still particle board, but at least it has a nice steel underframe.
>>80368225The biggest issue with particleboard is that if the surface is scratched or through the edges it absorbs water
>>80364128Yeah that would work really well if you don't mind the price. It would be a lot cheaper if you bought unfinished pine from the trade section and stained it yourself tho
>>80347322So everything is a 'hack' now?
>>80368352It also starts looking like shit after dragging your lower arms across it for five years. Solid wood you can just sand down a little and it'll look like new.
NOOOOO CARPET IS AWFUL, ROOM FLOORS NEED TO BE>wood imitation laminate boardok yuropoor>tileok latino>dirtok third worlder
>>80368953>>wood imitation laminate board>ok yuropoorI have wood flooring though.
>>80347536comfy as fuck
>>80354453that looks Russian as fuck
>>80367858>slip-resistant>softer on feet>hides dirt
>>80362916>says this in a reply to a post which literally contains a link to a set of instructions on how to sag-proof a desk like that one
>>80371456>>80367984>hides dirtmore like it sucks up dirt and cant ever be cleaned properlyenjoy your asthma
>>80359247>carpet with rolling chairlmao
>>80347536It’s the 21st century, time to come out of the closet
>>80355517Wouldn't it get tiresome to hold your arms out like that without support?
>>80368109>>80368184> REEEE AmericaRent free. I can't wait to buy a house with comfy wall-to-wall carpeting and walk all over it with my shoes on. Eurocopes will never understand such a feeling.
>>80363619That's a big desk
>>80353872Yes seems lame.
>>80372325Yeah, Europeans will never understand such a lack of taste.
>>80352746the depth is shit
>>80364617galant desks were the best desks dunno why they changed it.
>>80353872>TrappedYes once you pick a side you may never switch to the other side.
>>80371629Stops me from rolling away when playing ricer games
>>80348610Trim is pointless.
<$50 at walmart. weighs nothing.
What about wood flooring on any sturdy enough sheets and edge details?
>>80362534>consumer tier dell prebuilt>hotbox corner>vapeYes to all. I haven't built a gaming PC in over ten years because I was busy chain-smoking and playing consoles. I bought an Inspiron 3671 on sale with an i7 and GTX 1650, threw 32gb of ram into it, and it's fine for playing everything I want to play on steam.I might buy another case eventually, but it runs quiet and cool without any RGBTQ nonsense
>>80347536I actually really like your setup anon. It's very cute.
>>80358939thats great until you have to clean it. Also too many places for insects to hide.
all this poorfag cope. just buy a nice L shaped office desk for around $300-$500 or so.
>>80347536YOU WILL NEVER BE A JAPANESE YOU FILTHY WEEB
>>80371456>hides dirtThis is your brain on McDonald's

>>80371456>slip-resistantSo is a clean floor that's not covered in layers of your foot grease.>softer on feetWhat are socks.>hides dirtThis is something you DON'T want.
I'm so fucking sick of that exact same ikea desk that everybody has now, get some fucking taste
Is this the set up thread?
>>80353184I like your eurotruck simulator setup, however clean up, your mom shouldn't clean all your shit retard
>>80353872I feel confident you could do this with just 2 file cabinets
>not having a standing deskAll you zoomers never going to make it
>>80368225wtf why cheap for you? Where life?
>>80381872>Those gigantic blisters on the walls near the bottomIt's not that hard to scrape them off why do you keep those
>>80382941You are looking at the sitting/standing version with the motor to lift/lower the desk. Notice the holes on the feet to manually adjust the height and no buttons under the desk on the right in the other pic.
>>80379839But does that mean I can't learn it or enjoy the writing system?>>80378972Thanks :-)
>>80347322lol I just put a single plywood table on top of whatever shit I found in the house and stacked it until it was even with my only drawer (right), and put some fabric on top of the plywood to make it look less shit, then on top a glass panel that doesn't even cover the whole desk, only the keyboard/mouse area. It's messy but it does the job. This is a temporary solution as I'm doing my research on what to buy next, this one seems to be best for my needs so far: >>80351602
>>80381946My workplace is switching to a smaller office due to half of the employees preferring to stay remote and I'm hoping that they're gonna offload some of the standing desks that we have sitting around. Too much of a cheap ass to get one myself.
>>80347536>those shoesOP IS THIS YOU?
>>80385366If you look carefully the shoelace design are different
>>80385366Those shoes arent even similar
>>80384440Got a Chad quencher here.
you can use tins as a cheap monitor raider
>>80347322as soon as i get a tower this will be it
>>80387276Care to re-varnish the top?
>>80347536WHY DO YOU HAVE WEIRD JAPANESE LETTERS?WHY DO YOU HAVE REALLY WEIRD LITTLE FOOTIE SHOE THING? THATS FUCKIGN INSANEWHAT IS THATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
The ikea countertops are good, the cabinets are dumb and overused. Just get some normal legs for it
>>80387943The countertops are generally crap, except for the single wood one
>>80374746yea, you would have to have it first to understand what the lack of it is like
>>80347322>unix philosophystop being a retard
>>80387999>single wood onewhat?https://www.ikea.com/us/en/cat/kitchen-countertops-24264/
>>80367858poor american families love it for whatever reason
>>80360697ruri doesn't have heterochromia, she's probably just cosplaying in the pic
>>80359704While I was doing physical labour (I was kinda fit and really light, no fat folds at all back then) the worst were the jobs that required me to stand in place. Walking was enjoyable, sitting was passable, but standing in place made my legs hurt.Humans were made for walking, not for standing in place or sitting.
>>80353927anon...it's called deskTOP for a reason
>>80352560americans wonder why all their factory jobs left for china but also can't stand up for more than 5 hours
>>80388327Misread and mistyped as tabletopThe US the countertops are standard dimensions? Here the countertops are supposed to be custom-cut together with the kitchen cabinets
>>80381781Based keyboard, ive got the same, haven't felt a better one since.
>>80353872fuck I laughed
>not getting super high quality desks that municipality/county is just throwing away for penniesi should have saved some from the whole fucking container these idiots just threw away
>>80367858>is probably a nightmare to maintaini used to do carpeting. nobody maintains their carpets. when you tear them out you reveal a decade of cat piss and somehow theres always cigarette butts under there too
>>80385366No, I just wear slippers when walking around the house. Sneakers almost any other time>>80387930 ^Also I like Japanese writing system
>>80388946americans are fucking retarded... like the fact they dont take off their fucking shoes inside wasnt enough, they put full fucking carpet in whole rooms
>>80381781>not using corner cubes>not even using end caps when not using corner cubesdisgusting
>>80355517Oh look, it's the knee destroyer mark II
>>80347536sawed-off you say? very interesting
