This is a computer desk that is intended to handle a few functions – fit comfortably two large (32”) monitors, accommodate for a large music keyboard together with a computer keyboard, provide hefty desktop space, allow for cable management, with space for a switch, power supply etc.

I chose asymmetric trestle design so that desk legs never get in a way while providing adequate support. The desk top is 6’x3’ raised 29” from the floor level, with 6’x1’ monitor shelf raised about 7”. Both desktop and shelf are made of two plys of 3/4” birch plywood laminated together, edge banded. User can can comfortably slide music keyboard under monitor shelf when not in use, freeing up space.

Legs and back are made of solid birch using mortice and tenon joinery. I added two 5/8” copper pipes painted black to the leg construction. The system unit shelf can be attached inside or outside left or right leg, and adjusted for height.

The desk can be fully disassembled for transportation – all connections are made with 1/4” machine screws and insert nuts.

Finish – boiled linseed and five layers of clear arm-r-seal topcoat.
