I want a big desk - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Use a door and a couple of filing cabinets.

A door is about the size that you are looking for, but getting the height just right may be a little tricky.

I don't have a picture available, but back home we had a nook in our basement that was about 3 feet deep and ten feet long. We ordered a custom-cut fiberboard tabletop (about 3 inches thick--this thing would keep a locomotive off you if you hid under it during a tornado! ). It was supported by a rail we put into the wall all around the perimeter of the desk, two 2-drawer filing cabinets at the ends and a set of drawers in the middle. It's basically two "workstations" next to one another. When we ordered it, we had them put two 3 inch diameter holes in the surface to run cables through (monitor, mouse, kb, etc.). Also added some shelves above it (like a hutch) and some power outlets. We've had it for ten years now and it's been fantastic.

A similar design to the picture above would be best.

Can anyone suggest a carpenter or shop in which I can purchase what I want, I have tried Ikea, office works and other stores like that.

Help is very much appreciated ^_^
Since im not over there I would just look for a carpenter / cabinet maker as desk construction is similar to cabinets. Would be pricey I would guess.

If I were u draw out what you want. And just build it. Just remember measure twice cut once...

Wish u had pics id like to see this...

Im in the US. I do pc repair in the area so after we moved to a place with 2 spare bedrooms. Im turning one into an actual office so the g/f rodent have to clean up my pile system.

I ended up buying several 2"x3"x8 ' building a frame that is 8' long and 26" deep. On each end I have a 22"x48 " coming off the main structure to form a U shaped desk. On top of the frame I put 3/4" Birch cabinet grade plywood. At the moment im looking for sheets of tempered glass to put on top of the plywood to protect it after I stain and seal it.

After I get that im going to put sliding cabinet dora under the 2 sections coming off the main structure to hide all my parts/machines. And all my reloading equipment on the opposite side. Nothing like guns, ammo, and computers. : )

I drilled whole under the desk support braces and im running air line hoses from my air compressor so I can blow the dust out of the computers w /o haveing cables and hose all over the floor.

You guys are spending $50 on the whole desk. I spent $45 on the 4'x8' birch plywood alone.

Kind of like this. Red shows where the support rail is situated, beneath the desk. I think it was just some 2x2 (maybe 2x4) that we anchored into the concrete wall.



Never pass up an opportunity to show off my awesome drawing skills.

To be honest i recommend building one yourself. Much better results and much more customization?

Depending on what kind of quality you're going for, a weekend, a few nails, some wood, a six pack and a nail gun would get that done.

Could go down to your local hardware store and pick up some MDF and be done with it.

My desk took my 5-6 days, but it's a very high quality piece, something that you'd find in a furniture store. Me being a amateur carpenter I couldn't stand an MDF nail desk.

This.

My desk is pretty big, can't remember, but it was cheap to make and it's great.

Quite an old picture, when I had another case, but the desk is still the same
