Questing For The Perfect Workspace

I write this article on my laptop in bed as I currently have no computer desk(again). I disassembled it in an effort to ensure I don’t tie myself to the functional but counter productive space it enabled. I have been through a number of desks or variations with 3 in the past year.

Designing a Better Workspace: Planning a DIY Desk/Work Cart

Having moved recently I found my old Ikea Expedit desk would not work in the new space(no dedicated office!).  As such I felt this would be the time to get a desk that would best fit the space and my work style. The catch? I plan to build this myself(most likely with some help). Building a desk will not only allow me to get exactly what I want, but also get something that has more utility and features and better fit the small space I have available than what a traditional desk can do.  Continue reading “Designing a Better Workspace: Planning a DIY Desk/Work Cart”
