Here’s yet another project I did for myself. When you have 3 children with you in a 3 bedroom house there isn’t any room for a computer desk, or anything else for that matter. So…What you do is beg your wife for months to allow you to set up a little desk in the corner of your bed room. only thing is, by the time you’ve figured out the space needed to put everything the desk seems to grow. Anyway this is what it wound up looking like:

You know how that I look back I realized I never finished staining the upper parts. The desk (lower part) is now in my oldest son’s room. There are still 2 at home. youngest married. Daugther moved out. We snatched up his room. Made a den out of it. Made a game room out of the basement. Took it all out for my daughter when she moved back in…but that’s another story. LOL.

Looks a lot bigger in the first picture.

Great design. Looks very functional.

Hey Gary;

Actually it does, doesn’t it. It fit into the left corner of a 12 by 15 bed room. where now sits a armorie with a tv in it. I tried to get as much as I could in as little space as possible.

Hi JJohn,

You built an nice computer desk. It is functional and organizes your computer and work area.

Thanks for the post and the story behind it.
