Amazing. Can you please tell us how did managed the cable management.

Thank you. The rules say that I can leave an Instagram link, right? https://www.instagram.com/p/CTo60YpFdQN/

There are only pictures of the desk that I have decorated so far, and there are pictures of cable management under the desk.

u/AmbitiousAnxiety 12d ago

Omg you have an Instagram just for your desk? This is the greatest thing I’ve seen today.

Somehow, decorating my small space became my hobby, so I made one separately😅

Velcro strips go a long way. Also something to stick them to surfaces. The plastic cable tubing looks good but it's a pain when you want to change things, so I don't recommend that.

Screwing power strips to the underside of your desk can take things to the next level.

u/morethanmeetsdi 12d ago

Can consider using a desk mounted cable box too

u/Runaway_5 12d ago

Yeah I went thru a couple and finally found one I really like and it's dope

Your table looks so good! What are the dimensions, if you don't mind me asking? Trying to find the right one for my set up.

I painted Walnut Woodstain on IKEA Hammarf countertop.

249x65x2.9cm for the rest of the world.

I also feel comfortable in cm, but I changed it for rest of the world🤣

Any issues with the countertop bowing due to the monitor? I like this look but that always seems to be an issue

u/electronicdream 12d ago

This is what I have in my appt: https://i.imgur.com/ZKtiLSL.png

1.5 years later, no bowing at all.

u/celluloid-hero 12d ago

It’s nice to see someone else who doesn’t use a keyboard with there computer

u/BipolarRooster 12d ago

You can buy an extra supporting leg for in the middle to prevent bowing/sagging, works great

It is a paper cutting on a transparent acrylic. If you look closely at the X-wing in the picture, you can see it floating a little.

u/unimagine 12d ago

I mouse with my left so I can do the standard 10-key with my right. Your implementation is equally legit.

2

u/VNG_Wkey 12d ago

When I switched back to a TKL for more mouse space on the right hand side I got a keyboard with USB passthrough and a keypad I could put on the left side. One of the best QOL things I've done for myself. I now have all the mouse space I need on the right side, a numpad that's comfortable and ergonomic, and no loss in functionality when I'm doing something other than gaming as my PC doubles as a workstation.

u/dipe128 12d ago

This is great. I always have some nitpicky thought like I would’ve put this here or that there, but I can’t find anything that I would change.

u/itypeallmycomments 12d ago

I feel the same, but if I'm being very very nitpicky, I'd change the mousemat to a bigger one

It is a moss and bracken terrarium made by purchasing a diy kit. I sometimes spray water according to the instructions.

There are also terrariums you never have to water, there is this one guy that hasn't watered his terrarium since 1972.
