Computer Desk

Post by Quatrerwin » Fri May 22, 2020 7:14 am

Was looking to build a computer desk relatively cheap. Had initially picked out an ikea desk but after reading a bit closer, it may not support the weight of 3 large monitors, a printer, and keyboard tray. Anyone have a good DIY computer desk or ideas for a suitable table top that's roughly 60 inches wide?

I created a desk with 1.75" thick butcher block and used three of these legs. I put two 72" x 32" butcher block boards together in an L-Shape with a metal bracket and internal bar joining the two blocks together for strength. It's a massive desk that is incredibly strong and heavy. Everything together it was about $500.00 for everything. You could probably cut that in half if you use just one block and two legs.

Then you can take a look again. I bought a wooden table from an online home furnishing website called Auspoints before, and it was good.
