Welcome to the musical part of my mind...
studio thumbnail Construction of My Studio Workstation Desk
I wanted to put together a place where I could work on my music.  A dedicated area that would be organized and fit my workflow.  I spent several months thinking about what I wanted.  I looked online to see what was available.  I took "virtual studio tours  to try to get some ideas.  I looked at workstation manufacturers.  Finally, I drafted up some plans for what I wanted, and went off to the local hardware store to buy materials.

The follow pictures show the progression spanning several months.  Due to time constraints, I was only able to work on it a few hours a week.  Many of those hours were spent in redesign, trying new ideas, planning how to integrate new things I had seen.  It certainly wasn't an efficient process... but it was exactly the process I wanted.  In addition to wanting a space to house my kit, I wanted a project that I could work on with my hands and allow to evolve creatively.  I am pretty excited because I have reached a point where the desk is usable.

Everything you see here started as flat wood.  The racks (black cabinets) were all fabricated and built by me.  I was very pleased with how they turned out.  On the whole, I am please with this project to date, and look forward to adding to it.

In the werx: I still need to finish the bottom two cabinets (which hold the thing up).  I also plan on adding a cable routing system, integrated electric, integrated usb and firewire, some sliding spaces to hold additional gear, and anything else my brain conjures up.
