Anyone here who was able to assemble a standing desk all by themselves? Got one from Autonomous and I’m going crazy assembling this mammoth of a table. 🥺

I did! Also had a mammoth of a (glass top) desk to assemble. Placed the desk top upside down on the box and foam, assembled it upside down, used a power drill for the screws so it would be sturdy enough, then stood it up by rolling it up slowly.

I procrastinated for 3 weeks before finally opening it tonight. Good luck on assembling it!

I got mine together alone. The hardest part was the top, but very doable to do alone.

Yes. I’ve assembled two standing desks. Other than lifting it at the end it’s just like follow the instructions.

In the instructions they’ve said get a partner to lift the table top. I live alone 😞 struggling lifting the table top right now. I was able to assemble the rest of the desk

Yes I was able to. There’s instructions... just follow them?

I got the fully Jarvis and assembled it myself. (Gf did most of the work tbh)

My ergotron was so heavy I assembled it upside-down on the sofa and then flipped it onto it's feet with its own weight. I couldn't lift if on my own and had to scoot it into place once upright.

I assembled the autonomous desk by myself. I would recommend that you assemble it upside down and then put it against the wall and slowly lift it up.
