Well I checked out the Official ‘Post your desktop’ Thread! thinking it was going to be for desks/workspaces but it wasn’t so I thought I would start one. I’m in the process of planning and building a custom office desk so I’m looking for ideas. Plus, it’s always fun to share and see other people’s workspace. :-)

Here’s my temporary setup until the new desk is built.

A bit of info: Yes, that’s a cheapy folding table. In fact, it was so weak that I had to put a slab of wood on the back half to support the iMac and other stuff, lol. I can’t use the wood desk on the left because it doesn’t work with my office chair so my girlfriend uses it occasionally (it’s actually hers anyway).

I didn’t want to spend any money on a new desk after I moved unless it was a desk I really wanted. I can’t find one that I really like, so I’m building one. Here’s my idea(s) so far, suggestions welcome.

I’m going to build a desk frame from Kee Klamps and order two custom pieces of 1/2” tempered dark grey or black tinted glass. Then I’ll just mount the glass to the Kee Klamp desk frame. It has to be two pieces due to how large it will be (over 8’ wide). That’ll give me the modern / industrial look I want with a low profile desk surface to slide the desk chair slightly under (unlike thick wood desks). :-D

When I get all the materials and build it, I’ll take lots of pics along the way.

Well it’s an old pic(about 2 months) Getting some new stuff tomorrow :D

It doesnt matter if you have an cool looking desk/space, i have seen lots of photo’s of people that earn a lot of money on the net, and i can tell you most of the time it’s just one pc and a little desk ;)

Ikea? great stuff there, my desk = ikea powered ;)

Yeah, I’ve looked at Ikea and I just can’t find anything that I really like. Part of the problem is I want a glass only surface because it’s thin so I can roll the arms of my chair slightly under it and rest my palms on the front. It’s comfy that way. Plus, I love glass (even though it shows dust really bad) and I haven’t been able to find something simple, industrial but modern.

Another problem is the size and shape of the desk I want is not something anyone will have, lol.
