So im planning on buying a new desk and i have this in mind http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/desks/table-tops-legs/linnmon-table-top-white-white-stained-oak-effect-art-20353741/

Problem is it is 3CM longer than what i need it to be so how would i go about getting a clean cut so there are no visable damages the side is gonna go up against a wall so i wont see the inner wood bit

 

anyone got any ideas

Use a table saw, but go really really really slow... and put heavy tape over the table top (where you are cutting) to reduce surface damage.

My username is both misspelled and redundant. Don't take anything I say seriously as I am a moron.

I would not recommend cutting the linnmon desks in any way since they are just filled with cardboard which will mean it's going to be hard to get a clean cut and will compromise the structural integrity. Either get a shorter linnmon or get a different desk

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Why don't you just make your own? A few 2x4s, piece of plywood, done. Most places that sell lumber offer cutting services as well.

Glossy tabletops are suboptimal, because they potentially reflect light into your eyes. You don't want direct or reflected light hitting your face.

 

Am a safety delegate at work, that's what they taught us.

I deal in shitposts and shitpost accessories.

I don't understand why you don't get the smaller one? 140 < 146 and 120 < 146

 

I have a different ikea counter top as my desk and it works pretty good

 

edit: if it's because you want an exact fit then only a DIY solution will fit perfect.

 

Another option would be to put some sort of trim on each edge of the desk, it would look natural and probably nice with a flush fit.
