Video of the week: new desk setup16 February, 2023
Standing desk from Maidensite was the present I made to myself for Valentine’s Day. Valientine’s Day in Estonia is called Sõbrapäev, which translates to “Friend’s Day”, to also include people who aren’t in a relationship. Love this concept, as it brings lots of joy and smiles. And presents. So, my present brought me tons of joy and smiles. I was dreaming of having an electric standing desk forever. And finally, this day has come!
Standing desk from Maidesite
The delivery in Germany was insanely fast. It took less than 48 hours since the order. The package was done very well, every single piece was securely placed so that the delivery wouldn’t damage anything.
I have chosen for myself a black metal frame with a black wooden tabletop. The size is 120 x 60 cm as I don’t have that much space in my living room. Nonetheless, it is 10 cm wider than my previous desk, which gives me some extra space for writing.
Now, let “Made in China” not discourage you. In fact, some of the best electric standing desks I have seen were from Chinese manufacturers. I think it’s a big business in China and they produce a fantastic piece!
The manual and assembly instruction came in a fat book, which was translated in multiple languages.
After unpacking the standing desk from Maidesite, I wanted to show how all the parts look, when the standing desk is disassembled.
Now, it is time to put everything together. And let me tell you, this is my favorite part! I guess, I am compensating for my childhood, when I was raised without having constructor toys. Is it a thing? If any of you are a psychologist, let me know.
Next, I am building up the legs and finally attaching the frame to the tabletop.
And here it is, my beautiful standing desk from Maidesite is ready! What can I say? The assembly instructions were extremely high quality, and it was super easy to put everything together. But that’s not all. It came with some amazing add-ons, like cable management, side pockets and a hook. In my old desk, I had to buy all these things separately.
I absolutely loved how the control system saves your desired heights in 4 buttons. The table movement is not loud and changes the height super soft.
