  1. General Woodworking Discussions
    Hello friends, I've been out of the shop a while working on other stuff, but now I am converting a spare bedroom into a nice office.I'm buying most of the furniture, but I want to build a wall to wall desktop, approximately 12 feet long. Finding a 12 foot long desk surface, or even butcher block...
  2. Desktop Bag Toss

    This mini indoor version of Baggo or Bean Bag Toss is designed to sit on a desktop or tabletop and well sized for a typical office cube. It is a fairly simple project - easy to build. The free plans are available on our web page here . We also made three videos giving a blow-by-blow account of...
  3. Chunk of walnut for desktop accent point in attic finish out

    A friend gave this wonderful chuck of six-inch thick walnut that I finished and had my neighbor give me some scrapers that I used before about 12 or more layers of Tung oil. I'm using it in a finish out of the attic space in my 1926 home here in KC. I wanted a small desk top that I could put in...
  4. Desktop (and Shop Update)

    This was another quick and dirty project. Just made the top and attached to IKEA legs. Attached the edging using the domino. Really this post is just the easiest way to highlight an update to my workshop photos and description, since I don't think it notifies you any other way. Enjoy!
  5. Mantel and desktop

    I completed this mantel and built-in desktop for a home that was being renovated. The owner wanted a mantel that looked like it dated the house which was around 1870. The wood is white oak (much quarter sawn) and the finish is varnish (General Finishes Urethane Topcoat). I found the wood for the...
  6. Cubbyholes for antique desk

    Hi everyone, I am pretty new to LJs-this is the first project I put up. My mother-in-law (saintly woman, seriously) asked me to build a desktop cubbyhole cabinet to match an antique desk she uses. It is in butternut, with straightgrain pine drawers. It has six thicknesses in it-1/4 drawer...
  7. The Hexagon (remote control organizer)

    Apologies to Chuck Norris After seeing several hexagonal projects on LJ recently, I wanted to expand my comfort zone beyond rectangles. I've made several styles of desk/remote control organizers in the past and they have been popular sellers. Why not make a hexagonal organizer? The basics...
  8. Ash wood desk

    I've been working on this desk build for months now and I'm so happy to finally be done! First I built the 3 base cabinets from 3/4 ply finished with Polo Blue cabinet paint. Then I spent a few days cleaning out my home office and making space… And finally got to work on the desk top! This 7+...
  9. Laptop Desk Riser

    I've been forced to use The Man Cave to work from home. The laptop screen was a little too low and the peripherals were everywhere. This was my simple solution. Now I can stash the keyboard and mouse. There's a gap towards the back for partial cord management. There's a hole in the bottom of the...
  10. Pallet Made Desktop Organizer

    There are so many things that you can make from a pallet. I found one recently and it was in rough shape…..and I mean rough shape. After cleaning it up and making a few dados and rabbets I had a nice looking desktop organizer. It can hold regular sized computer paper, pens, pencils, and even...
  11. Desktop Forklift

    I made this project for my girlfriend. She always loved watching me drive a forklift and this was a good way for her to remember me every time she sits down at her desk =). The "unit" on the forks has room for business cards and the back is a pen holder…made with various woods, pine, cedar...
  12. Curved Desktop Pencil Box

    This pencil box was commissioned as a desktop unit to match the owners desk profile in order to store his ever growing pencil and pen collection. Solid oak with oak veneered drawer fronts and back, the top cover is pin hinged to the body and carefully fitted to the curved profile. Black ebony...
  13. Hedgehog Desktop Cell Phone Holder

    Made this one day fun project as a surprise for my wife. It is a useful addition to her growing collections of Hedgehogs. The Hedgehog is 1/4" walnut cutout on my Jigsaw. The base is 3/8" red oak. I used a bowl carving bit on my plunge router to make the indentation for paper clips, etc. I cut...
  14. DESKTOP ORGANIZER / SCREEN STAND

    Desktop drawer organizer /computer screen stand - made of oak. Two pieces, dimensions 52×26x16cm, finish two colours of wood oil. Drawer slides and stops are just 8×8mm oak stripes glued and stapled to sides. Drawer front panel is little higher (lower) than drawer itself, so you can open it by...
  15. Projects Tiered, Tilted Pen/Pencil Holder

    My wife recently took up coloring as a hobby. She has large sets (100+ colors) of pens and pencils, but needs only ten or so for a given drawing. This holder helps her organize the pens or pencils (up to 11) she needs for her current drawing. The holder sits on a small, low table beside our...
  16. DESKTOP UPGRADE

    One desktop set for my neighbour….and all other who work from home…desktop upgrade made of 18mm oak, finish wood oil. Small drawers has 12mm thick sides. They slide on the table, there are no drawer slides. Dimensions 104×38x9cm. Regarding notebook holders, improvement would be slightly angled...
  17. Desktop speaker stands for Audioengine A2 speakers

    This is a pair of speaker stands that a friend asked me to make as a holiday gift for someone. The first picture is the stands at home on my computer table, and the second picture is a sketchup model with the speakers. Unfortunately I don't have a real picture with the speakers. He gave me the...
  18. More Business Card Holders

    I had some extra stock from the last set of business card holders using the copper wire (which didn't work out so well). I used it making four more holders. I used a 1/4 inch dowel this time instead of the wire. The base is a little thinner as well, and without the purpleheart (suggestion...
  19. Outhouse Toilet Paper Holder

    This was a project I made for my grandma about 5-6 years ago as a Christmas present. She loves outhouse memorabilia, as you may be able to tell from the pictures. This was a lot of fun, and really easy to come up with the design. Can't really tell by the pic, but the left side has a hole with...
  20. Computer Desktop Replacement (c. 2002)

    Photo 1. The birch plywood replacement desktop still works great. My primary software development computer runs 9 monitors. Using the same keyboard, mouse & monitors I connect to 3 other computers as needed. Computer dictation software finally works well for me. Photo 2. My home office in...
