Modding a third desk - monitor addiction.
Modding a third desk - monitor addiction.

Here's my latest mod to date. This mod was prompted when i purchased a third 22" monitor to go with my setup and found out there was no space. :cry

The desk

Sorry, i didn't get any pictures of the desk as standard but these are pretty close, minus my measuring.

Front

Pilots drill holes, allows me to get the Jigsaw in for cutting.

The jigsaw and goggles ofcourse, safety first.

More measuring. The "Metal bar starts 6.5in" looks shopped but it's actually written on the table in marker.

Why not build a shelf for 4, 5 and 6? Problem solved... You just need a few more graphics slots and cards

I mean get a few screws and bits of MDF (and braces) and screw them to your desk... obviously this means d/cing and reconnecting the monitors (and drilling holes for the cables)
