How big is your desk?

Read that however you like.

Looks like I will be WFH for more than a few months (currently at 26). I've been using an old dining table as my desk b/c it was already here, but I think it's giving me terrets.

I don't want nothing expensive, just something comfortable for my right hand to rest on.

I got a laptop, 2 monitors, and a keyboard. Curious as to depth. Right now my monitors are back about 30 inches to the back of the base plate. Not seeing much out there very deep.

Current height is 29.5 inches....feels like 2-3 inches too much.

thx

So you just fly the plain once it's up in the sky? That's the easy part. You sound like a slacker.

I had a desk that would convert to a standing desk via electric assist and 3 presets that was 4'x5'. I have no idea how much they spent on it, but it had to have been at least $3K-$5k.

Office desk is huge AF. Gotta show my dominance in the office somehow.

For home office, we converted the guest bedroom closet into a desk simply by adding a lower shelf and running electrical. We could do more to organize it like this (but I'm not that creative and rarely work from home).

with the dual monitors on a stand in the back that brings them to about 18" from the front of the desk. Laptop sits to the left to either make a third screen or somewhere to mount my iPad if I want to watch TV. Three drawers on the left hand side of the desk.

We got this desk when wife's old work was moving and liquidating old furniture. It is actually really nice and we got it for pretty cheap.

We had someone build us a 6' x 30" x 30" table for the kids to WFH on and it would work for a good desk too, currently it holds all the crap I don't have on my desk. It needs cleaning out and relocating to the garage.

Only half of it is necessary for my laptop and two monitors. I use the other half of the L for my personal laptop, iPad, and other junk.

I finally got The Desk when we got the house. I think I actually found it on CL for $150. 6'x 3' with leather writing areas on the top. Worth every cent of square footage it takes up.
