Gerton deskVerified BuyerBought this to use as a desk to replace a 100cm Linnmon. Prefer this a lot more as it's made from solid beech yet very reasonably priced.
Trimmed off 25cm with a handsaw as it was a bit too long. It's still big enough for 2 x 24" monitors with room to spare.
Applied 3 coats of an own brand satin varnish from a well known hardware retailer (lightly sanded between each coat). Looks great and also super smooth.
I'm currently using the Adils legs from the Linnmon, but looking to get the black/brown Alex drawers once they're back in stock.
Very happy with the Gerton.5
Nothing like the photos. Unpleasant patchwork.Luke2020I bought one of these a year ago and it looked great but the newer batch have changed. It now has an unappealing patchwork appearance. seems to be made of less quality wood cuts, off-cuts.2
Good Value Solid Wood Desktopcph1992I went to IKEA intending to get either the KARLBY Worktop £120 (good solid quality, but veneer and expensive) or the LINNMON desktop £29 (more affordable but poorer quality) In store I discovered the GERTON and it's a perfect compromise between the two. In fact it might be even better than the KARLBY as it is solid wood rather than veneer. I use the table top on top of two ALEX units for a office desk and love it. Bought some oil from IKEA too and treated the wood and now have a lovely very solid feeling desk. Highly recommend!4
