    Good job man.

    I love the combo of a $4K daemoness with a $90 desk

    This is awesome. I'm in the middle of an epic basement studio remodel. Included in the build is the design and construction of a custom studio desk between the console room and the drum room. I'll be posting the entire studio build as a picture diary thing, including the desk!

    Btw doing it all myself with the help of my cousin.

    Holy necrobump, batman!

    Alternatively this is making me REALLY want to build my own desk. dang. I want to integrate rackmount hardware into it though... That'd be a bit more of a challenge, seeing as I don't have any carpentry skills whatsoever.

    If I did not have a saw I would rent a table saw and maybe a miter saw. They can be rented fairly inexpensively and the cuts will be much better. Racks are not that hard to build, the equipment is 19" and the rack is just a bit wider at 19.125". Box joints are great with the below jig and are a strong way to connect things.

    This INCRA Precision Fence :: Router Table Fence :: INCRA I-Box is real handy for getting nice box joints and not too expensive here Woodcraft.

    If you do rent saws or have tools and want another woodworking project, building bass traps with Owens Corning 703 4 inch panels or building a 12/6/1 or a 15/6/1 fEARful™ enclosures for bass/drums/keys cab are good ideas.

    Be Safe


    Well, if guns are banned, a tablesaw makes a great alternative.

    Its been a couple years now. I'm wondering if your desk has started sagging in the middle yet?

    Great job! I've been wanting to build my own desk as well. I was thinking of going with a modified version of this one that my wife found on pintrest.

    There was a very slight sag in the middle. Only noticed when I laid something flat right in the middle. Easily could have been fixed by just putting another support under. I since cut the desk up and made a more mastering type desk with slots for rack gear

    Took a table saw to it. Just started hacking away, painted it black and installed rack mounts. Moved it into a smaller room
