Billy Standing Desk


Using the two Billy bookshelves as ‘legs’ for the desk, I placed the Linnmon table top on top of the shelves. The angle of the bookshelves came after a bit of deliberation, but this angle provides more support for the table top and allows easy access to the shelves for storage. Care was taken to space the shelves in such a way that the Ekby Tore shelf mounts would still be able to mount onto the table top without hitting the bookshelves. Eight 90 degree brackets were used to attach the tabletop to the book shelves. Lastly, the Lack shelf was centered (easy to do with pre-drilled holes) and attached to the shelf mounts.

    Javier, did you mean to get a single corner Pax unit and cut it in half height wise? Otherwise I’m not sure there’s something of equivalent height to the Billy, at least not here in the US.

    FWIW, I did something similar for a friend, using a single large Billy (80×106) at the back, and attaching two Olov legs to the front, with some cut-off pieces of wood about 15cm long to extend the legs.

  2. That’s definitely a good alternative. I didn’t come across the corner module while looking for parts. I’ll keep it in mind for version 2!

    It would be great to have that same design using the pax corner module. You could claim more space on the 45 degree front, plus having a 90 degree rearside for even adding another module and getting some additional space :)
