Description: I thought my desk needed more organization, everything just seemed like it was everywhere. So after seeing a few hacks after a friend suggested this site to me I decided to try a project out for myself.
After a week of planning I didn’t realize that the 21cm CAPITA’s were really tall but luckily my desk space is 210cm x 100cm so having such tall partitions weren’t so bad after all.
I attached 4 CAPITA legs to the bottom corners of both LAIVA’s. Which was simple enough.
The next bit was a little trickier. The AMUND is quite long, 150cm so I needed the extra legs. Currently I’ve got a 32″ LCD resting on it including the PS3 and Nikon gear. It needed to be solid. You can see the two extra legs I attached to the left of the main monitor. I’ve also attached one directly behind the main monitor to support the TV. What I did not take a picture of was a 8cm deep, 4cm wide chunk of wood I cut out directly behind the monitor so the irremovable mount behind it could fit in so the monitor was up against the AMUND to create a little more desk space.
