Isn't desk to hight for you? I think it would be wayyy to hight, even if I'm 6"7'.

Actually I would prefer a desk like that, it's a pretty nice setup and looks like a good height.

Depends on the person, but I would prefer a higher desk to a lower one, it's easier on the back and helps when working on PCBs and other delicate hardware for easy viewing and manipulation.

The top of the desk is 32" its perfect for me. VERY strong too. I can stand and jump around on it and it won't budge a single mm :)

It's good that it's so strong, considering it will need to be if it's going to support all of your equipment. ;)

Looks like you need to have a lean event sand clean up some of your extra stuff;)

But what if you needed to work on it? Huh? Huh?
Ok, you got me, but I know I would work on my equipment on that desk. :p

EDIT: That's right, I would work on my equipment on your desk. :D

Lots of room, bring the goodies. only one stipulation, if you bring it here to work on, it stays here or in the rack :)

2. Are those your cheerios or the baby's?
3. Every picture of your desk has the message light lit on that cisco phone. Pick up your darn VMs, would ya?

Finally, thanks for posting. Fun to see a fellow addict's progress.

Nice pad you've got there. :cool:

I'm thinking about building me a desk out of 2x4's and some birch plywood myself. This little 30" wide thing I'm working with barely has room for the monitor and kb. If I've done my figuring right I should be able to make a L shaped desk 6' long and 28" deep out of one sheet of plywood. My dad will probably push me to use oak but I'm not too fond of it. I just want something functional that's relatively cheap that I can put together quickly.

I'd love to have a rack to play around with too, but I really don't have enough to put in it to justify one. Just my NAS, pfsense box and switch.
My girlfriend is nice enough to pretty much let me do my thing in the spare room. I had the whole floor covered except a path to the desk while working on my G5 mod and didn't catch any flack. :eek:

Im selling my rack for cheap :)

the lshaped desk is awesome to have, mine covers the 2 walls in my room, i love desktop space I still need to take a router to the edge's and make them rounded over.

With a rack, once you have it, it will start filling up :)

I bet the shipping wouldn't be so cheap :eek:

Like I need more reasons to buy more stuff. :p Maybe if I ever find a job. :mad:
I've thought about just getting some rails and building an enclosure for it, but since I don't really need it it's not a priority. A desk would be much more useful.

I have always wanted an L desk, just never got around to it. It will be nice to have room on either side for a laptop, books, or room to work on another machine without having to roll around all over.
What did you use for your top? It looks like just plain old pine like you would use for flooring. I can't believe how expensive plywood has gotten. I figured I could put my plan together for about 70 bucks. 42 of which is a sheet of birch.
