I've been thinking, later on when I get some powertools and setup a small shop in my garage, I'd like to build basic furniture, starting with a custom computer desk that is built to my needs. Has anyone ever done this before? I'd be curious to see others' designs. My idea of a good computer desk is simplicity, just a big flat surface with lots of room, as well as zero clutter on the ground as far as wires go, making it easier to vacuum. I'd want everything raised and enclosed, the computer, the wires, etc. Also it would have it's own power outlets where needed, minimizing the need for reaching all over to plug things in. For example there would be 4 outlets right on the top for the monitors and possibly other equipment that sits on the desk such as speakers, printer, scanner and so on. Probably use GFCI in case I spill a drink. I would get/make shorter cords. The enclosed portion would have an air tight access door so you can go manage the wires, get to the PC etc. The front would have an air filter and intake fan to take air and pass it through the enclosed area, so it can cool the computer itself, UPS, and other equipment then it would have an exhaust as far away as possible from the leg area. This would make it so there's less heat going to you, and keep components dust free.
