      make one yourself, or seduce the hunky guy next door to make one for you

      and then kill him.

        If you got extra, the ikea Galant is a beautiful desk. That is what I am getting next.

        I built my own desk. None of the shops had my dimensions or anything close to it. I wanted a deep, rather small desk. I think it was 80 x 140 I wanted, but anything 140 was 60 or wasn't the type of desk I wanted.

        I went to a kitchen Benchtop place and they gave me an offcut of one of their laminates (which looks / feels so good) for $60. They cut it to size (80 x 138).

        Next I chucked some Ikea Legs on the desk and boom. Easy :smile:

          I'd just go find an office supply liquidation and grab a desk from there. They'll be worn, but way better than the garbage particle board/glue/plastic sandwich board desks they sell at Target/Walmart/etc.

          And the office supply liquidations are generally dirt cheap.

          Big and spacious, probably one I'm gonna get myself, you have until 3/15 to purchase.

          Edit:

          If you use this link you get a access to a code for $30 off a $60 or more purchase for Staples. Be sure to turn off location services and wifi on your phone or the code may not work. I was able to receive the message but the code didn't work until I got help from another individual so YMMV.

          Proof: staples code proof

          Glass is nice, I used to have one but unless it's high quality you'll start getting worried about stress cracks and dropping hard objects on it by accident. Mine actually chipped after a couple years from dropping something on it and had to file it down so I wouldn't get cut/gouged in the wrist every time I used it. Eventually replaced it with medium quality wood, no more stress! Though, the glass does look nice!

            Luff has an employee/resident discount. He'll hook you up. How else did you think he got LSA?
