Desk, Laptop Stand, Headphone Rest
Keeping it Simple
Bedside Table Detail
Desk, Laptop Stand, Headphone RestThis desk was made from a gorgeous walnut slab, but one that was quite a bit thicker and narrower than I needed. The solution: resaw. For this, I needed to build my own frame saw in order to cut the slab in half by thickness.
Laptop StandI made this laptop stand out of walnut scraps, oak dowel, hinges, one finishing nail, and a magnet embedded in the drywall. When the laptop is elsewhere, the stand folds flat against the wall.
Desk LegsI fabricated these simple square tube sleeves to accept the douglas fir legs. The legs can be adjusted 2" for height and levelling.
Floating ShelvesArbutus is an incredible wood. I made these shelves to free up desk space. Rather than use one long continuous shelf, I decided to break up the span into two pieces. The long shelf covers three studs, the short only two.
Tensional SupportThe shelves are held against the wall by screws in a simple keyhole routered into the hardwood. The weight is supported by a single tensional element, shared by both shelves.
Keeping it SimpleA eyelet bolt, aircraft cable, crimps, and a shelf pin is all it takes.
Bedside TableThe floating shelf theme continues with this maple bedside table. Since the depth is much greater than the arbutus shelves, it needed a beefier support. I chose to use kee-klamp pipe hardware (painted to match the walls) to brace the shelf from below.
Bedside Table DetailI especially like how the live edge skirts the side of the headboard.
