A quality monitor stand was my very next purchase after this desk. Highly recommend a gas spring monitor stand that can quickly and easily adjust the monitor height. I'm sure there's other options, but the gas spring is just so easy and convenient.
For proper ergonomic set up, the monitor height at sitting vs standing weren't the same for me.

The desk comes with screws. I ended up using a crappy old Ikea table top, works fine.

Used this for about 2 years now 5 days a week with a solid wood 110LB slab on it. No issues with the motors, no issues of any kind. Absolutely love it.

very tempting... currently using the ikea bekant and wouldn't mind an upgrade. however, the thickness is only 2cm, would this be an issue with the mountain screws?

Bought this several months ago and has worked great. I did end up buying a cheap ikea top for I think 30 or 40 bux and have had no issues at all and even have a 43 inch monitor and pc case on the desk. As someone mentioned about the cheap Ikea table tops they are kinda hollow, fine for screwing in to the legs as the weight of the top and stuff on it takes care of it anyways but a monitor arm may be iffy. I ended up buying an ikea shelf and adding the ikea metal legs to attach to it to use as a monitor stand so that the monitor is eyesight level.

I bought one of these about 2 months ago. It's a great desk base. Currently using with a leftover tabletop but come summertime will glue up something nicer.

I actually bought this without the intention of ever standing. My thought process was I'd adjust the height of the desk to my chair instead of having to adjust the height of my chair to my desk.

How does it compare to the sit stand desk at Costco for $350 that has a glass table top?

This was my first time doing stain and poly ;)

I did 2 coats of dark walnut stain, sanding before coats. Then same process with polyurethane, on which I did 3 coats. Lots of patience is needed, but very happy with the results..

You can always re-do yours :P

I have a sit stand desk (Uplift dual motor from Texas) and just want to reiterate a solid top is the way to go. I just went with laminate - but it’s a solid MDF core. Maybe I’m the extreme case but what one doesn’t consider is the amount of cabling and power required for this setup sometimes. I also ended up mounting a pc tower to the under the desk as I needed separate Linux box. So solid wood helps to screw everything up to the underside (including power bars etc) to keep everything tidy.
