HOME OFFICE PROJECTS
COMING SOON : ROOM DIVIDER
COMPUTER MONITOR SHELF
This was a fun little project I have been spending a lot more time than I used to at the desktop computer and I need to make some organizational change to the desk as I need more room and needed to raise the monitor up to a more reasonable height as I am 6’2
I went online for some inspiration and came across multiple ideas that I liked a little. Using some features in each one I kind of combined them all and added my own touches.
The entire unit is made up of joinery and no screws were used to fix the parts together.
I used locking rabbit joints and dado’s added with glue.
The unit measures in at 28” wide x 10” deep and 9”’at its tallest side that I made high to accommodate my headphones. The unit also has a shelf that is divided into 2 compartments that can hold papers and I also put a compartment on the right side that I am currently putting writing instruments in.
Finally the bottom shelf is raised up about 1.5” so as that I can slide the keyboard under, I finished the unit with 3 coats of Polyacrylic .
Thanks for looking and have a great day
Since we decided to renovate one of the rooms in my house to a home office, we have been planning and researching the look of the room so we decided to do a minimalist look and my wife needed a table that was flush with the window sills in the room so as that we could put plants and a few decorative things such as pictures and ornaments on it.
Although I made this project for the home office this console table could be put in almost any room and the dimensions could also be altered to make it wider, deeper or higher.
So off I went doing some research and came across this console table with tapered legs and thought the design of this table would look awesome in the room. So I built a 3D model on my Sketchup software program to get a realistic view of the unit.
The console table features the following elements
- Solid Oak Tabletop with a inlay around the perimeter of the panel. the top also has a routered ogee profile around the edges
- I used dowel joinery for the entire project
- Tapered front and back legs, using a home made tapering jig for the table-saw
- Finished with 3 coats of Minwax poly-acrylic
