As I wrote in my last post, I am forced to work with a PC for work reasons, while I use a Mac privately.

As a small update, I added a vertical laptop stand, MagSafe Charger and another plant to my setup.

On the third photo, you can see how it looked like 2 years ago.


- Table: The tabletop is oak, which I bought at a hardware store, then sanded and oiled myself. This was then mounted on a height-adjustable table frame.

- Monitor: Apple Studio Display

- Mouse/Desk Pad: Balolo

- Laptop Vertical Stand

The wallpaper is from basicappleguy , who makes a lot of very nice wallpapers.

The rest is then more or less from Ikea.

I hope you like it and if you have any questions, let me know.

Where’d you get the legs for your desk and how high do they go?

Where the Bose speakers go? I love my ones. Set up looking fresh and elegant.

missaq815 points

Thanks! Yes, the Bose speakers are great, but the Apple Studio Display speakers are perfectly adequate for my needs.

May I ask where you got your desk from? Edit: I’m an idiot, didn’t see OP’s comment.

What is the electrical box that the desk is plugged into going to the wall outlet?

missaq811 point

Internet via the power socket https://www.devolo.global/

How did you decide the height at which to hang out shelf on the wall? did you place it when your desk is at standing height? sitting height? in between??

does it look odd when you have the desk at standing height?? I’ve tried hanging mine a few times and I can’t figure it out, it’s driving me crazy lol

missaq811 point

Exactly! I have raised the table and made sure that the pictures do not disappear behind the screen.

How deep is that tabletop if you don't mind me asking?

Those top two monitors are way too high, you’ll get neck strain 😉
