Nice setup. It’s always hard to hide the wires and such. You’ve managed to do some of that. I’d like to see some closer picts of the top and that serrated edge and the cpu cabinets. You’ve got great picts of the computers but the desk is sort of hidden by technology and chairs. Thanks for posting this.

I love the look, the molding on the edges, the tower case treatment, all of it. Did you design it? How modular is it for moving, etc.? Do the tops just rest on the cabinets? It’s real cute that the puter on the right has LJ on the screen..

About the design, It changed about fifty times from start to finish, We started making the five boxes and then one thing led to another, it can hold 4 computers and a 32” tv with plenty of elbow room.We have 3 computers running in here at this time, alll of this came in handy during 15 months of shoulder surgerys, I lived in this room day and night. When I get some time I’m going to build another one .The next one will have air tight boxes with exhaust fans, You would not belive how hot it can get in this 13’x14’ room,turn the air up so it gets comfortable in here and you freeze in the rest of the house ,we keep a fan running when we are in here

Craftsman if your looking for some ideas,here are some of the problems my wife has run into besides the heat problem ,On the next one I would put drawer slides in th bottoms of all the computer boxes to set the towers on (easy for the wife to move them to add stuff and work on them) another thing we were thinking was a slide to get the keyboard out of the way,(just to make it look neater) this the cleanest it’s looked since we put it in ,also I would put in a place for the speakers and the other audio stuff maybe a shelf over the monitor or under the desk out of the way. on my side of the desk I have digital camera base3 speakers a printer and a lamp. Underneath I have a tower and on in the other box I have camera cases and the hardback wooworking books .a nice addition would be a 5” tall shelve for a the junk I have just laying around
