Standing Desk for Computer

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Standing Desk for ComputerTeleworking + bad ergonomics = pain in the tailbone. Had to make a stand-up platform for the computer. Maple plywood. Breaks down into four pieces, joinery = friction & gravity only. It wobbles only a wee bit, but not terribly. Groove for the cell phone is a 1/2” channel with a 3/8” hole for the power cord to feed in from underneath. The table is a cheap hollow-core door cut to width = my wingspan (64”); table trim cut from pine framing studs. Legs are 1” black iron pipe, threaded in segments so that table could be easily leveled. The computer stand sits on a clear vinyl deskpad, which REALLY works to keep it from skidding around the tabletop. Ikea footstool. Raw linseed oil on the computer stand, Minwax polyurethane finish on the table.

Finished with a few coats of paste waxSimple solution and my wife loves it!Thanks for looking.

Walnut Tabouret

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut TabouretThis is my version of the Stickley No. 603 Tabouret almost exactly as drawn in the “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” by Robert W. Lang. Oak would be more traditional than walnut, but I like walnut. I like the shape. I sanded to 600 grit and I used two coats of Watco tung oil, which seems more like a varnish oil combo in practice. Finishing is always the hardest part. I want to try one of the new hard wax oils next. I like this piece and I want to make more of them. I think a pair would make nice hifi speaker stands (Hint to the lovely wife).
