Re: compute desk- need help designing

I got one from Ikea a few years back for about $300. All the computer desks are too low for me, I just bang my knees under the desk if I move. The desk I got was a simple timber veneer (chipboard with timber finish stuck on) - but it's bigger than most computer desks and has alot of room underneath. It's 160cm wide, 75 cm deep and almost 75cm high. There's no drawers etc, so it gives plenty of flexibility as to where you and the PC are positioned. The depth and height is handy, but the width is up to you. You need room to put the monitor and have the keyboard and mouse in front comfortably. So less then 70 cm deep may be squishy unless you have to make do due to space constraints. Unless the PC desk will be used by short people and kids, build the height into it. A problem with my desk is at moving time - it doesn't fit through doors - but as it was a flat pack desk, it has some quick release screws at certain points, so the desk top comes off, then the sides. Just something to consider in its design - ability to move it around and how easily it can be disassembled for these instances.

Re: compute desk- need help designing

I simply like large flat areas, atm I have two small desks placed side by side. My computer is on one of them, my tft screen is wall mounted, and the other is for any non computer work I may need to do.

Re: compute desk- need help designing

I designed my own and then had it built by some very good people - the desk is 2400 x 900 because I like a lot of space but I was just sick of living in a mess where I couldn't finds anything.

As if you didnt just clean your desk Russ...
Mine's wicked (sorry no pics) but for $189 it's a multi purpose computer desk, junk storage area, breakfast, lunch & dinner table, cd & key holder (usually dumped there after being brought in from the car) but i guess that last one could come under storage area.. anyway, It's rarely tidy.

Sorry about the crappy pic, but you can see the desk (sorta). My grandfather designed and made that desk.

Re: compute desk- need help designing

Lol, My dad is a marketing manager at a shopping mall and they were chucking a whole lot of desks out so my dad picked one up, shortened it a bit to fit in the room nicely and modified it a bit, you could do that
