This was a fun little project I have been spending a lot more time than I used to at the desktop computer and I need to make some organisational change to the desk as I need more room and needed to raise the monitor up to a more reasonable height as I am 6’2

I went online for some inspiration and came across multiple ideas that I liked a little. Using some features in each one I kind of combined them all and added my own touches.

The entire unit is made up of joinery and no screws were used to fix the parts together.

I used locking rabbit joints and dado’s added with glue.

The unit measures in at 28” wide x 10” deep and 9”’at its tallest side that I made high to accommodate my headphones. The unit also has a shelf that is divided into 2 compartments that can hold papers and I also put a compartment on the right side that I am currently putting writing instruments in.

Finally the bottom shelf is raised up about 1.5” so as that I can slide the keyboard under, I finished the unit with 3 coats of Polyacrylic .

Thanks for looking and have a great day

Looking at your neat workstation setup I noticed the mouse pad on the right. So i figured you were right handed. I write left, throw a ball and bowl righty…. I can’t say that I’m ambidextrous because it means you can use either hand equally! I can’t; so I found that they call it Cross-dominance.
Either way Great looking work shelf!

I think we have something in common besides me being from Norwood Ed. I learned how to type with both hands when I attended Norwood high. I never thought typing class would be something I would use until I got my first computer back in 97 or 98. LOL!
