Hidden workbench

Guillaume Trannoy’s workbench sits innocuously in the corner of his office, masquerading as a file cabinet. However, the front flips down to reveal a work surface, soldering station, oscilloscope and power supply. The drawers below hold components.

  1. Very nice design, but one suggestion for longevity and minimization of inadvertent collapse (on the next one): Put some pull-out supports under the work surface, maybe on some 100lb drawer slides — those little hinge hanger things won’t hold up to much of anything, the screws will pull right out with a disastrous consequence. Old “secretaries” like that used some supports. Or maybe pull out that top drawer a bit and shim up a support for the work surface?

    1. Thx! I searched something to hide current development and let it tidy inside ;-)
      But you are right, heavy work may collapse the desk. But generally i work on handheld devices and it is cheapest enough to be replace when deteriorate ;-) (deep anough for my oscillo, cutting the back for power lines and ready!)

    1. Yes, it is this one !
      I know it is not like a workshop but a day, when i would have bigger flat or house… ;-)
