So many clean builds I’m really impressed.
Cable management is likely the hardest part of doing builds like this. Really need to learn how to make my own cables one day as buying them is just to expensive.
I’m lucky to have a Caselabs M8 and able to hide most of my cables away, so I’m really impressed with some of the builds.
Only thing custom is the wire management
Calling it a custom desk is a stretch of your imagination at best quick makeshift.
Oh, come on, man. If he is happy with it, don't put him down for it. Maybe he has simple tastes. Maybe that's all he can afford. Maybe, he is into something like rustic chick (you would be surprised how much some people will spend for a primitive look). Maybe he had an entirely different reason. Why should we even care?
I see a lot of setups I may not like but that reflect's my personal tastes so I don't put them down for it. Frankly, when someone puts down a choice I make because the "critic" doesn't feel it meets their standards, I ask them (and mean it) if they are offering to pay me for something better.
