When I’m working on a project I often find that the the plans, my notes, reference documents, pencils, calculators, whatever always wind up on the bench or the tool I’m working on. I find myself moving them around to make room all the time. So I came up with this small footprint desk on wheels that I can move near where I’m working when I want to or move it away when I need to. It holds a magazine open on the drop down desk, and the magazine and other ‘stuff’ can be pushed back into the desk to close it up if I wanted.
I built the top desk section first, since that was where I felt I was most likely to change stuff. I orignally planned this desk as a protoype that I would recreate in a hardwood, but now that the poplar, MDF, and scrapwood thing is done I don’t feel the urge so much to do it again. After all, it’s for my shop ;-].
It’ tall enough not to kill my back, and small enough to not get in the way so much, with a lot of extra storage. The storage will help, I think, as with the small footprint it is tippier than pretty much anything else I use, but it’s still not bad.
Thanks for looking.
