Double desk, light and full of storage space

Materials: Vika Alex, Capita, Micke

Description: My girlfriend needed to have her own space, but I needed to have a place for my Personal Computer.

I found the creative-ikea-desk on Ikeahackers, and it gave me inspiration.

So I used 2 MICKE drawer units for the both ends of the workstation, and VIKA ALEX in the middle to hide my personal computer.

Thanks to capita legs I have been able to add a table top above the 3 consoles.

The next steps are :

- A USB hub encased in the shelf
- Ventilate the console hosting the PC.

    Had to post up and let you know how groovy I think that design is. Top work, mate!

    Super !!! J’ai fait un bureau aussi avec ces caissons et plan de travail. J’avais aussi besoin de ventiler ceux où il y avait les tours de Pc. La solution a été de faire 6 gros trous sur le panneau arrière à l’aide d’une scie cloche. Depuis c’est parfait !!!

  3. Looks really good, but isn’t the desk surface now uncomfortably high?

    That’s exactly what I need to build my workstation! I’ll probably replace the drawer units with something to hold Kassett boxes, but other than that it’s perfect.
