Looks good tho

Cable management is non-existent right now for the most part.

CD's are from cleaning our some boxes that had been stored for a long time. They are a couple different Metallica albums.
It's a beer. Founders KBS 2017. My last bottle.
I think it might just be the lighting? It's not dusty IRL.

Set up the monitor stand. I put it slightly farther forward than what is probably ideal. Looks and works a lot better than before though.Image

You guys all love having dual monitors with the bezels in the middle of your view. I prefer having one directly in front of me with the other one serving as a secondary so I'm not always looking to the left or right.

You're right. I think at work i favor one more, but at home it does look pretty dead center. If I was a big pancake gamer I would want one more in the center for sure.

Obviously the best solution is 3 monitors!

It's not really an issue for me because I'm normally sitting at an angle anyway, rather than dead center with my head cranked to one side.

How is that possible? Looks like you would hit it all the time. It's a deal breaker for Corey, he is going to try modifying it when he gets it this week.

Corey, my desk is caving in from my monitor arm!!

Putting a wider board on top and bottom now. I'm glad you made me aware of this. Image

Knocked this out in 10 mins thanks to fast drying spray paint. Have a painted one on the bottom as well.

Don't care enough to match the color perfectly. Image

I'd say you're better off looking at something like the 'Workstream by Monoprice' line from Monoprice.com. I think they have a manual crank desk platform for like $170 and desk tops ranging from $50 to $100 (depending on size).

I looked at these and the one I bought goes 6" higher so I went with that. I really like that the Monoprice ones are gas powered though.
