I have been working the past couple of months on renovating my garage, insulation and such, before the snow flies. I hope to have a nice cozy little workshop set up pretty soon, but still have a place to park the cars when I am not working in there. I also had an old computer kicking around in the garage with a Wi-Fi card, so I set it up to stream some music into the garage. It also gave me a computer to do quick searches on the internet regarding anything I might be working on at the time. The other problem was where I was going to put it.
So, from some left over untreated pine fence boards I still had from this past summer’s fence build, I whipped this stand together completely from scratch. It’s the first stand I have built from scratch that didn’t even wobble a tiny bit. It stands almost 6 feet tall to put the monitor at face level (mostly custom designed for me). Since this was a bit of a prototype, I hope to make a new model in the future with an adjustable keyboard tray and an extra shelf for a printer.
The only problem with having a computer in the wood-shop? Dust.
