Computer In A Desk

The most common form of the computer desk is a variant of the ergonomic desk, which has an adjustable keyboard tray and sufficient desktop space for handwriting. Provisions for a monitor shelf and holes for routing cables are integrated in the design, making it easier to connect the computer components together. The typical armoire desk provides space for a keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer and speakers. Cubicle desk designs for business and government workplaces include a range of shelves, trays and cable-routing holes for computer systems. In some computer desks, the cabling is affixed to the modesty panel at the back of the desk, to create a neater appearance.

There are a great variety of computer desk shapes and forms. Large multiple student computer desks configured in rows are designed to house dozens of computer systems while facilitating wiring, general maintenance, theft prevention and vandalism reduction. Small rolling lectern desks or computer carts with tiny desktops provide just enough room for a laptop computer and a mouse pad. Computer desks are typically mass-produced and require some self-assembly.

Early personal computers, like the original IBM Personal Computer, were enclosed in a “desktop case”, horizontally oriented to have the display screen placed on top, thus saving space on the user’s actual desk, although these cases had to be sturdy enough to support the weight of CRT displays that were widespread at the time. Over the course of the 1990s, desktop cases gradually became less common than the more-accessible tower cases that may be located on the floor under or beside a desk rather than on a desk. Not only do these tower cases had more room for expansion, but also they have freed up desk space for monitors which were becoming larger every year. Desktop cases, particularly the compact form factors, remain popular for corporate computing environments and kiosks. Some computer cases can be interchangeably positioned either horizontally (desktop) or upright (mini-tower).

Step 17: Install Computer Desk Hardware & ElectronicsShow All ItemsWith the finish applied, it was time to install all of the hardware. First, the access panel for the subwoofer compartment. I installed this door using a piano hinge and barrel bolt.Next, I installed the fans. One of these 90 degree impact driver attachments is a necessity here.I continued installing the electronics, attached the USB hubs and power button. I used the playing card trick again here to get even spacing.Next, I installed these cable pass through brush plates. There are a total of five of these on the desk. Two on the front, behind the keyboard tray, for the mouse and keyboard cables to pass through into the desk. The other three are on the back of the desk, and this is where the cables for the three monitors route into the desk. Pretty slick.Next, I installed the piano hinges on the back of the top. I used two 30″ piano hinges, and they seem plenty strong to support the top.I installed the drawer slides for the keyboard tray next. I’m not super happy with the way the keyboard tray works, since it’s a little loose when it’s fully extended. It’s not a huge deal, but not as good as I had hoped. I think some different drawer slides might have worked better.Finally, I installed the gas struts that help lift the top and hold it up when working “beneath the hood”, so to speak. These were a royal pain and took a lot of fiddling, but I finally got it right.The last step in the build was to install the casters. These were simple, just drilled a few holes, pounded the caster sleeve into the hole with a hammer, then popped the casters in. Done! Also, my niece found these casters fascinating.

The ergonomic desk is a modern desk form which, like the adjustable drawing table or drafting table, offers mechanical adjustments for the placement of its elements in order to maximize user comfort and efficiency. The ergonomic desk is usually a “stand-alone” piece of furniture allowing access to the adjustment mechanisms. Some ergonomic desks have a sufficiently large desktop height adjustment to create either a common “sit-down” desk or a less common standing desk, which allows the user to work while standing. The ergonomic desk is usually a close companion to the ergonomic chair.

The computer itself is normally separate from the desk, which is designed to hold a typically sized computer, monitor and accessories. Cabling must be routed through the channels and access openings by the user or installer. A small number of computers are built within a desk made specially for them, like the British i-desk. Various proposals for the “Office of the future” suggested other integrated designs, but these have not been taken up.

Step 15: Paint the Computer Desk (aka a Complete Nightmare)Show All ItemsFor the finish, I used a black milk paint covered with a clear polyurethane top coat for protection. I attempted to spray the milk paint, and it was a major fail.Here I am trying to spray the paint, trying being the operative word. This was a HUGE pain and was incredibly slow, no matter how much I thinned the paint. I ended up having to paint the desk by hand, and it was a very, very, very slow process. It took my wife and I over seven hours to put two coats onto the desk. It was not fun. I almost had a breakdown here. Many thanks to my lovely, patient wife for keeping me sane here.
