Need a new desk!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So, my current desk is too small for everything to fit on it and I need a new one. I'm in the UK and I need a desk that is around 160cm wide. I can't get one from Ikea because the closest store to me is over 45 miles away and the delivery charges are ridiculous. I'm looking for something that can be bought online that will suit my requirements. Any suggestions?

Homebase, Sainsburys, Tescos, Argos...

Build your own? B'n'Q do great wood and can cut all the pieces to your requirements.

I'm in the same boat, but personally I'm uninterested in building my own desk.

Ok, that's a lie, that's quite a bit of e-peen if you ask me, building your own desk. It'd be nice, buuuut, staples has some pretty nice ones for $90-$200. And I'd like one of the cool glass ones I've seen in pics here on OCN.

I'm looking for a nice wooden one that's at least 160cm wide. Stuff from Staples tend to be pretty expensive so I'd prefer something cheaper if possible.

Do what I did, summon your father to make one! Mines is excellent, made out of solid Oak. I will post a pic of it one day, but I would have to take everything off it. Maybe next time when I clear my desk...

I bought a 8foot long counter top from Home Depot. Drilled some holes in the back for cables. Its rests on 2x4s mounted to the wall and secured with a few "L" brackets. For bracing the front I have 2x4s running at a 45 degree angle from the front of the counter to the wall. Lots of room and looks great imo.

For shelving I built some wood shelves and mounted them to the wall.
