  1. Ikea desk suck they bend they scratch and are hollow. Get a real piece of wood or double up on thick ply. Never buy anything from Ikea its all trash and they aint that cheap no more.

  2. Hi man, I watched your desk, and I have a question for you if you don't mind. I bought a Saljan kitchen countertop, its basically 70 inches x 42 inches. Two Alex drawers on the front and 3 legs in the back, the same ones you have. I needed the extra depth for my lg c2 oled and well, the space does not hurt either. As for the possibility of the kitchen island top to sag, I wondered how your desk was holding up so far? Also, I wanted to know if you think putting 4 struts in a rectangle fashion would be better? Thanks. My plan is to extend with a regular ass countertop like in your video to finish with a L shape ;D

  3. this is great setup. but I don't see how it is in better price well in Canada and just the Ikea stuff (drawers, legs and the cheapest by same size countertop ) is 875$ when the 3 set of small legs from amazon will be additional 53 $ so i excluded the struts and the rest of the list and i'm at the point where it's above 1000$ with taxes how is that suppose to compete with Wayfair/amazon/going to private carpenter who will make these purely from wood for me?

  4. Looks good brotha! How much did you pay for them Alex drawers? I was looking at them around late November and I thought they were $75 or so but I'm looking now and they're $120. Am I crazy?

  5. Hey I'm also in NE! Looking to build this sort of setup within the next month. Did you drive to Ikea or go through shipping process? 92 Karlby isn't available for shipping so I was thinking of getting a butcher's block with same dimensions locally. Thank you!
