My home workstation. This is pretty much its day-to-day state. I do like to try and keep it tidier but when its in constant use it tends to get a bit messy. The cable management also needs some serious work but its not intrusive so I keep putting it off until I have time to sort it (No excuse, I know!).

Workstation. Thinking of selling the LCD arm and monitor and going dual screen. (Excel for dummies book is not mine. The teddy however, is.)

My home office - still running my almost 5yrs old ThinkPad T61p which has been upgraded - SSD, 500GB 2nd HDD and 4GB RAM. I'm also running a HP Microserver to backup this as well as my other half's laptop (ThinkPad X121e).

Randy, that room looks pretty sweet. Do you have any blinds/curtains on that window?

Thanks. Yes there is a rollerblind that comes down. I also have some solar film on the window glass so it keeps the room cool and during the day I can see out but noone can see in :)

It is hard to say what it cost me, I got the steel for free and the chair for free from work as they were throwing them out but I had to buy a lot of tools to finish the job and paint, consumables etc so I would estimate about $1500 but almost none of it is on the actual desk.

I really don't think there would be a market for something like this, it was just something to make while I taught myself to weld (I work in IT). The chair is very heavy and although I have a design in my head for a more refined version that is also made of wood, I won't have the time to make it for a while as I have other projects that need tending to.

I have a playlist of videos I made during the build, you can see how it started out as a really terrible idea and evolved to something better. http://www.youtube.c...4BF16ECBAF8F4F6


Cheers.


I'd buy it in a heart-beat :D

On a side note, everyone has this extra clean look but I got all these cables running around everywhere :(
