I had a space to put my workspace that is kind of unusual, very long, I had a desk built, but the finish on it is a joke. I went to Ikea to see if I could buy one of their custom desktops (prefinished) and just drop it in, but the max size was not long enough.
Here are some potential solutions:
- Get 2 pieces and connect them with dowels or something, then I will have a seam
- Get an IKEA piece and just have it end and then the top of the file cabinet would be exposed
- Have someone refinish this top, taking the time to build up a more durable version
- Have a new custom top done using prefinished material
The setup itself is a really good one.
The desk is like 80" wide I think? and max at IKEA was 72 or something like that, misses by 6 inches or so.
