New Computer Desk - From Seaten Console

Submitted by DIYER_MD on Sat, 09/06/2014 - 18:10

I used the Seaten Console Plan as the basis for this project.  I made the legs longer to raise the desk up to the height of a computer desk.  I also added extra sections to the top to proved extra storage areas for books, etc.

Did you build this to be the height of a standing desk? It looks great either way! I am looking for a good plan to modify. I like the staging of Ana's website on the monitors. :)

No, it is still a regular height desk.  The legs are actually 28 1/4 inches.  This makes the desk right at 29 inches.  I set the monitors up on the top because I like them a little higher and it frees up the desk space.  It makes them comfortable viewing for me.  I appreciate your nice comments.  If you want a nice but simple desk, this is the perfect plan.  I started building this one right after I saw it on the site.
