Description: I wanted a desk that would fit all my monitors and have a hutch. I bought a 2×4 Expedit, Expedit workstation, and the new Expedit that has different size holes.
I laid the 2×4 on its side and attached the workstation to it with a L bracket and a small metal brace in the front.
I had this for about a month and I really wanted something with a hutch for over head storage. So I found the new Expedit shelf has just enough clearance to to sit over my 3 24″ Dell U2412m monitors. The exact clearance is 19″. I just only assembled part of the unit and set it on the top and secured it to the back of the desk with a couple metal braces.
The hutch piece is about 1.5 ” short but I lined up the hutch with the edge you can see and do not worry about the other side because my monitor hides it.
I am adding a black glass shelf to the center area once it comes in. It was only 40 shipped and 1$ for the mounting hardware.
The best part I found after I actually assembled it was the small part to the right of the hutch is the perfect side to slide my laptop bag in. I have a Waterfield bag (amazing quality bag,with 13″ Macbook Air)
