Looks nice and cozy :) I think because the counter is so thicc, it may look good with furniture risers like these to get some negative space. But that could also make it too tall...
Look for legs from your hardware store of choice (Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.) that you find aesthetically pleasing and can bear the weight of whatever you put on your desk. Just make sure they're the same length as the Alex drawer. If not, you'll have to buy some furniture spacers, such as these.
I used these kind-
They have them on different sizes.
VOVOV Furniture Cabinet Metal Legs Adjustable Stainless Steel Kitchen Feet Round Black and Silver 50 x 50mm Pack of 4 + 16x Screw [link]
The strip underneath is a 16.4 footer and was just the right size for how I ran it. I pretty much just made a rectangle around the risers on one side and then ran it maybe an inch from the back edge. Made the same rectangle when I hit the other side. I was really hoping it would shine more upward in the back, but oh well. I just didn't want to use bias lighting on my CRG9 because it would stick out horribly thanks to the monitor curve.
Here's the legs I used:
>Vovo Furniture metal legs
I'd say probably 55mm with the cap and 45mm ish without.. I'm not certain I took the plastic riser caps off of the legs. They are designed to raise and lower the product. I pulled them off because I think the legs look cleaner without the plastic caps and like you I felt everything was too big. These feel just right.
Hey man! If you believe the desk will be too short for you here’s a recommendation!.
You can screw them in, but I just used really strong tape to keep them from moving. You can also adjust the height of these if you want them to be bigger. I’ve had them for over a year now so worth.. you will need 2 orders of these since there’s only 4 in a pack :)
I ordered some of these furniture risers on Amazon.
Screwed them into the drawers and put the little rubber spots that cam with the Alex drawers on them so the top doesn't slide around
The top is the Hammarp from Ikea (I don't think they have it anymore), but it's essentially just butcher block and I stained it. The drawers are the Alex drawers from Ikea, and the legs between the top and the drawers are these legs I found on Amazon here.
got these from Amazon, and used 3m double sided tape to hold them in place
You're looking for metal desk legs from like Amazon, they flip upside down and I personally don't bolt them down even thought you can if you want to. Enough weight and nothing shifts without pushing too hard.

I assume you are talking about these? There are a lot of choices out there but these were the smallest I could find. I removed the plastic risers on them as well.
Yes you def should! Get these: VOVOV Furniture Cabinet Metal... [link]
Here’s a better picture of the drawers/top.
Basically I took VOVO furniture legs from Amazon, wrapped them in some black matching vinyl and then drilled 4 of them them into each Alex drawers.
The desktop itself is just sitting on top. It weighs about 70lbs just on its own so it will only shift around if I try and move it.
The desktop is an Ikea Karlby kitchen countertop. It's sitting on top of 2 Ikea Alex drawers and I used some furniture legs you can get on amazon for cheap as the lifts.
Those are actually from Amazon
I used Ikea Capita legs first, but they were too high for my liking
of course! Here it is [link]
I'm 6ft. The desk is raised by about 2-3 inches using this
The chair is raised by 4 inches wheels
They are drilled into the drawers and the table freely sits on top but it never slides.

From OP comment above:
The risers screw into the drawers and the table top sits on top of them. Here’s the link:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCKZRTL?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I used these furniture legs from Amazon Furniture Legs
The little stumps are 50mm furniture legs I got from amazon. Link: [link]
I bought 50mm legs for mine short length.
Might check these out on Amazon and find a length that suits you.
Thanks. Got these on Amazon.
I just found them on Amazon. I think it's ok to link them here?
Indeed they are, I measured how far apart I wanted them and shot some starter holes to get the screws in. Id have to remeasure for how far in and on the sides i did them but wanted to avoid being in on next to the side panel and not to far forward or back. I used the below legs and cut some of the 3M rubber to face upwards to prevent any sliding as the legs are plastic.

I think you can grab these spacers
I use short ones under the triple monitor desk and the larger size for the iMac part of the desk
I swapped them out for shorter legs. Both from the same company on Amazon.

Hey, i found the capita legs too thin and long for my needs so I got smaller wider ones from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCKZRTL/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_K16xEb65YN7EY
