« Part 10: Final touches: drawer knobs and legs Part 11 of Modern Computer Desk series no next part

When I started working on the desk, we weren’t sure if we were going to place it out in the room (with its back visible) or against a wall. Ultimately, we decided on wall placement, and that led me to an addition: a small shelf tucked under the bottom rear of the desk to hold our cable modem and wireless router.

The shelf is simple. It’s basically an 18” long by 8” wide by 3” high box with an open back and ventilation slots on the front and sides. The actual shelf is 1/4” luan with additional ventilation slots.

Here are the sides.

Here’s the bottom.

Here it is, ready to finish.

Due to its low profile and narrow width, it’s not visible from normal viewing angles. Here it is in the finished desk.

At this point, the desk is finally done. Thank you for reading my blog!
