Yeah! I like it. Looks like you went a more opaque grey, which seems to have turned out rather well. I dig the cable routing hole thumb.gif

I'm making some minor changes. I ordered two 15ft MiniDisplayPort to HDMI cables so I can move my big rig out from under the desk. It's running hotter than I would prefer with it being tucked under there and with the curtain behind it there's not a lot of breathing room. I'm moving it off to the side where it is out of the way and can vent easier with the longer display cables. I also mounted a hook on the left side of the desk where I can hang my headphones which has worked out nicely.

So tempting to make one. I have 2 lifetime picnic folding tables, which are very strong and easy to clean, but my Steering wheel and monitor mounts don't really work, the plastic just bends and warps too easily.

Need some time to make it so! Dark brown or black stain should be nice. (Was thinking plastidip, but staining seems more natural)

I think I'm gonna get 2 file cabinets from walmart (strong ones hopefully).

What desk height (ground to the desktop surface itself) did you guys end up with? I've been taking a few measurements of the desks I use at various locations and they're around 28.5-32 inches.

27.5" (same as the standard IKEA table heights) for the ground-to-desk bottom
When I had the sawhorses, it was more like 28" ground-to-desk-bottom

That gives me a 29.25" ground-to-desk-surface height.

I love the completed look heart.gif. Wasn't sure what I wanted in a desk until I saw yours!

@Seredin Can you tell me the dimensions of the shelf inside the desk leg? I'd love to know if I can fit my case and subwoofer inside the pedestals. I feel a little bit like a putz because I've had no luck finding the interior dimensions online.

The front open face is 9.5 inches wide and 23.5 inches tall. My case is just shy of 8 inches wide and 14.5 inches tall, for picture reference.

The shelf is 2 inches thick and can be placed at 3.5 inch increments from bottom to top. Mine's on the next-to-bottom increment, and my router, modem, and power strip rest underneath the shelf.

The "cabinet" space is 20.75 inches deep, with the side panels extending for 11.5 inches, leaving 9.5 inches of open space at the back of the sides.

Hope this helps!

Do you have your desk resting directly on your case? Or did you build some kind of enclosure for it? I'm looking at the bottom left table 'leg' btw.

Great job.

Great job.

Maybe this picture will give you a better idea of what's going on down there.


It's inside of a little cabinet / table leg thing from Ikea. The Ullrik I believe. Awesome little box, those Ullriks. I have my computer resting front-faced, in the left cabinet thing and my subwoofer is nestled in a rotated backwards-facing cabinet on the right, so that the subwoofer fires at the wall and not out into empty space (I'm certain I read that that was better one day in the OCN audio thread).

yeah, just found the post where you mentioned they were from Ikea. Not really an option for me since the closest Ikea is ~400 miles and their shipping rates are nuts. I do like how they hide your case though, and I couldn't tell your sub was on the right.
