Computer Desk

Computer Desk    -   Extended Desktop

In 2003, I moved my home office into a larger space and finally had room for a man sized computer desk.  It is 75" wide, 36" deep, and 60" tall.  It contains 1-1/2 sheets of 3/4" oak veneer plywood, 1/2 sheet of 1/2" oak veneer plywood, 37 b-f of solid oak, 1/2 sheet of 1/2" plywood, 1/2 sheet of 1/4" oak veneer plywood, and a sheet of baltic birch plywood for the drawers.  The large drawers on the bottom are set up for hanging files.  The desk disassembles into 27 pieces.  It has to, or it could never be moved!  The two side towers are independent units.  The center desktop connects between them.  A skirt board un the knee area also ties the units together.  The two hutch units are also independent with the top tying everything together.  I like lots of work area and arm support when running the mouse.  I designed the pullout tops to accommodate this need while still keeping everything at the same working height.  The two top sections pull out 18" and lock in place.  The bottom of each hutch unit conceals this movement and the extra workspace magically appears.  The drawer units are only 24" deep, leaving 12" behind them for a UPS, plug strips, and other accessories.  The inside panel at the rear of each drawer tower is removable for access to this area.
