I recently picked up 2 of the smaller VIKA AMON table tops in white and a bunch of legs and find that to be a great desk considering what i paid.

How do you like it size/strength wise??

A big bad PC like that will strain any marrage, as old ladies sometimes take a back seat to a good gaming session haha

Waking this one up from the dead. wink.gif

My desk doesn't get clean very often. So, I searched for a "Show your desk" thread off and found this.

My custom (MODed?) desk consists of three Galant desk tops I got in the AS-IS section for $10 each and three of the $5 IKEA desk legs (non-adjustable), and a few 2 x 4's around the perimeter to add rear support for the wall to wall to wall setup. I only used two desk tops for the actual work space and then cut the end off of the third to make a nice sized keyboard tray. Let me know what you think. smile.gif

I'm still debating on a Galant, I want a really deep desk. The corner is pretty deep but I want a more longer and consistent dept.

Very nice! Just curious but how is that tray holding to everyday use? I was in the market for the galant and wanted to add a keyboard tray with a full keyboard and qck mousepad just as you have biggrin.gif. How did you install the keyboard tray in? I was thinking of doing threaded inserts into the galant so that I could have a metal surface for threads.
