Hackers Help: Stacking 2×2 Kallax with countertop to make a storage/desk area

Let me apologise in advance for my terrible photo to showcase my question.  Nothing is probably to size and the “countertop” doesn’t go all the way across because of the woman in the chair.  But I’m wondering if I could stack two 2×2 KALLAX units with a countertop in between and then use a 3rd KALLAX to make the base of the “desk” at the other end.

But I wasn’t sure if the countertop would sit properly and not raise up on the other end – or otherwise be unstable.  I need the extra storage but still want a desk area. This will be on a wall that is about 95″ across.

If anyone has any input on this – I would so appreciate it!

Hi Katmack

I don’t foresee any issues. If you use a good quality countertop it shouldn’t rise on the other end. If it does, you can always keep it down with two L brackets under the table top secured to the side of the 3rd KALLAX.
