The IDÅSEN is a great desk......except for the fact that most of the top is hollow inside and literally constructed of paper and cardboard
I swapped it out for a solid rubberwood butcher block measuring 60x30x1.75", basically the same dimensions but almost twice as thick. Because stupid Canada means I would spend upwards of $500 for an equivalent product (that isn't even the right size), I made a quick trip south of the border to pick it up for just $179 usd. Lucked out on not paying GST on it too.
Fastened with 8 knife-thread threaded inserts drilled into the wood, and 1/4-20 bolts where the original 8 hex head bolts go. For better reusability than wood screws. The slab does weigh in at 80lbs but the IDÅSEN handles up to 165lbs, and I don't put heavy stuff on it aside from the one monitor arm.
There are stronger/tougher options but they are all darker woods, and I specifically wanted lighter colour to brighten up the room. What a difference.
