Materials: Expedit, Gerton, Vika Byske

Description: Shopping List: (all part numbers take from Canadian IKEA store) - 1 x Gerton table 501.067.73 - 1 x Gerton table 901.067.71 - 3 x Vika Byske Legs 846.090.85 - 1 x 4x2 Expedit 101.030.88 - 1 x 2x2 Expedit 601.352.99 - 1 x Capita legs set 200.495.38 (I used the 8" model) (You can easily substitute the Gerton table tops for other models to reduce total cost of the hack) Step 1: Assemble a 2x2 and 4x2 Expedit and lay them down side-by-side Step 2: Fix 2 Vika Byske legs and 2 Capita legs on the larger Gerton table top and have the Capita legs rest on the top of the 4x2 Expedit (I secured those legs with small plastic shelf supports as shown on the picture). You got yourself a standing desk!

Continuing for the sitting Desk ...

Step 3: Fix the remaining Vika Byske leg on one end of the smaller Gerton table top

Step 4: Screw in a piece of wood on the side of the 2x2 Expeit where the other end of the table top will rest. Adjust the height to have to top of the table at slightly above 29in from the floor.

Step 5: Screw in the Gerton table top on that peice of wood using the brackets that come with the Vika Byske leg.
