Cheap and easy desk

Uberwald writes – “My son is almost 8 now, and he had a nice little Crayola desk that my mom had bought for him to do his schoolwork at, and he had an old school desk with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse on it for his computer, and he had a lot of junk in his room. With the new school year looming on the horizon, I wanted to get him something a little better than that, out of a desperate hope that he’d spend a little time in there doing his homework and projects, instead of ruining the coffee table further. With that in mind, I consulted all of my friends and coworkers for their best ideas for a desk. It turned out that my initial thinking (largest possible broad flat surface for the given space) was a pretty popular idea. This leads me to wonder why there are so many desks with little specialized compartments out there, but not enough to actually research it.”Link.

  1. For years, my desk consisted of a slab of wood-grain kitchen countertop material (purchased from Home Depot) bridging two two-drawer filing cabinets. LOTS of room, the splash guard in back prevented things from falling out back, and the lip out front prevented pencils and such from rolling off the front. The keyboard height was just about perfect.
