This setup has been a project for the last few years since I moved into the new space. In it’s earliest forms, it looked something like this…
Same core monitors but with books as risers and a folding table holding it all up. Yikes! Eventually, I bought the foundation as you see below… beautiful.
…and for a time my MacBook Pro ran the show.
Thanks for reading!
