Whenever I share a photo of my workstation in my home office, I tend to be asked things like “What’s that keyboard?” and “What brand of microphone do you use?”
Given that interest, I wanted to write up a bill of materials (BoM) so that I can point folks here and so that you can get a configuration that works well together. I’ll include links where possible and some of them will be using Amazon affiliates.
My desk is a sit/stand with a built-in motor. It’s made by Ikea and comes with 3–4 different colour tops, but the base unit and legs are the same.
It’s easy to set up, but takes up more space than a traditional desk, mainly because of its depth. You also don’t get any drawers or storage.

The keyboard is a much coveted Durgod K320 in the tenless configuration. I think I got mine from AliExpress, Banggood, or eBay.
I’m very happy with the Apple Magic Trackpad, and if I bought again, I would get the space gray.
Here’s a link to a “renewed” version, I bought mine second-hand too and cleaned it before use.
