7 Great Customer Desk Projects

Seven Great Customer Desks

In case you missed it, last week was Desk Week! We posted seven great customer desk projects. These desks will inspire you to build your own.

Reclaimed Wood Pipe Desk with Side Shelves

Reclaimed Wood Pipe Desk with Side Shelves

This was a new home office desk. Linda wanted to build a reclaimed wood pipe desk with shelving on the side. Using reclaimed wood creates an industrial chic look that is difficult to match.

Rolling Recording Desk with Microphone Stand

Britton built a portable studio desk that was designed to support recording equipment. Probably the most unique feature of this desk (something we've never seen before) is the microphone support that extends from the side of the desk.

Wood Paneled Industrial Pipe Desk

One thing that stands out on this desk is the attention to detail. The computer shelf and cord management really make this desk look great. The use of the wood paneling pulls the room together and also hides the electronic clutter.

Randy used a raw edge slab from the Sierra mountains to build a beautiful custom desk. He used black pipe and fittings to support the desktop.

Pole Mounted Monitor Desk

Andrew's desk has a lot of character, and the construction is fairly simple. Kee Klamp fittings make the pipe base construction a snap. Andrew also used a very straightforward method for joining the boards.

Brittany D.

Purpose

Create a wrap around workstation with plenty of desktop space and under desk storage.

Features

Brittany used the IKEA desktops that are readily available at most IKEA stores. She joined four of these desktops together to make a complete wrap around desk.

Each desk is effectively independent.

Both workstations have ergonomic computer trays that are attached to the bottom of the desk.

She was able to specify the height of the desk so that a storage bin rack could fit perfectly underneath.

Thin metal panels were attached to the outside of the desk.

Building Tips

Brittany chose versatility by making each desk sit on it's own independent foundation. Each of these desks could be used separately in the future.

The metal modesty panels are a great addition to the desk. They can be used to hide the wires that are running underneath the desk.

Parts Used in this Desk

Instead of ordering different pieces and parts, Brittany used four Simple Table Basic kits.

Customer Quote

Thank you so much for your assistance with everything. Simplified Building really went above and beyond for me on this one and I truly appreciate it.

Easy to Build Barn Wood Desk [Desk Week]

Desk Week - September is a time when people are thinking about work. We have a lot of customers who end up building desks to help them get their work done. We'll be featuring a series of desks this week to show you what some of our customers are doing with Kee Klamp fittings and pipe.

Andrew H.

Purpose

Make a beautiful home office desk out of reclaimed barn wood.

Features

Andrew's desk has a lot of character, and the construction is fairly simple. Kee Klamp fittings make the pipe base construction a snap. Andrew also used a very straightforward method for joining the boards.

Andrew used a standard Simple Table Basic kit to form the base for the table.

The table base was painted a glossy gunmetal color.

The panel at the front of the desk was designed to hide wires. Very similar to Brandon's desk that we posted earlier this week.

Angle iron was used to connect the barn wood together. The angle iron was also painted to match the pipe and fittings.

Building Tips

Building a desktop of reclaimed wood is easier than you think. Simply cut the wood to equal lengths and screw it together with a section of angle iron.

The panel on the front of the desk is a great way to hide computer wires, enhancing the look of the desk. 70-7 rail supports make it easy to attach the front panel.

Parts Used in this Desk

1 x Simple Table Basic kit

2 x 70-7 Rail Supports - Used to attach the front panel

Created By

Adam

Purpose

Build a media editing workstation by pole mount large monitors to a rolling desk.

Features

Adam took a standard Simple Table Rugged rolling kit and customized it with some additional pipe and fittings to support two large monitors and some speakers.

The rolling feature allows the desk to be moved out of the way so that a storage area underneath the stairs can be accessed.

The speaker supports can be adjusted in and out simply by loosening and tightening the set screw in the fitting.

In order to support the monitors, he added an additional cross-bar to the back of the desk. Two uprights were connected to the cross-bars with a 45 fitting. The top of the uprights were capped off with two 15 Elbows and a separator pipe.

The monitor brackets were connected to the pipes with a standard set of U-bolts.

On one of the desks Adam used some additional 10-75 tee to attach two smaller speaker support pipes. The speakers were connected to the pipes with 70-5 Rail Support.

Building Tips

Build the support pipes for the monitor high enough so you can adjust the brackets up and down.

Use cord control underneath the desk to keep everything under control. Use wire ties or Velcro straps to keep cords attached to the pipe.

Parts Used in this Desk

2 x Simple Table Rugged rolling kits

4 x 10-7 Single Socket Tees (2 for each desk) - Attach the additional cross bar on the bottom of the desk.

4 x 15-7 Elbows (2 for each desk) - Cap the top of the monitor support pipes.

8 x 45-7 Crossovers (4 for each desk) - Attach the monitor support pipes.

2 x 10-75 Single Socket Tees (Only one desk) - Attach the speaker support pipes to the uprights.

2 x 70-5 Rail Supports (Only one desk) - Used to attach the speakers to the pipe.

2 x 133-5 Pipe Caps (Only one desk) - Cap the ends of the speaker support pipes.

Live Edge Desktop on Black Pipe Base [Desk Week]

Desk Week Live Edge Desktop on Black Pipe Base

Desk Week - September is a time when people are thinking about work. We have a lot of customers who end up building desks to help them get their work done. We'll be featuring a series of desks this week to show you what some of our customers are doing with Kee Klamp fittings and pipe.

Created By

Randy H.

Purpose

Use live edge slabs to build a custom desk that fits into a bay window.

Features

Natural live edge slabs have a great organic look to them. The slabs combine well with the natural light and wood drawers to the left in the picture.

The slabs were native to Randy's location, the Sierra's of California. The live edge slabs were 3-3/4" thick.

The key for this desk was providing custom supports to a very heavy desktop. Kee Klamp allowed the leg units to be built to the exact specifications of the space.

The desk was cut to fit into a bay window, so the pipe foundation had to be designed to accommodate this layout.

The fittings and pipe were painted flat black.

Building Tips

Flanges can be used to connect the slabs into the pipe structure.

Tee fittings are used to tie the supports for both desks together. This saved on the number of fittings that were needed.

Parts Used in this Desk

7 x 61-7 Flange - Used to attach the slab to the legs

3 x 21-7 90 degree Side Outlet Tee - Supports for the leg bracing

8 x 10-7 Single Socket Tee - Supports for the leg bracing

Customer Quote

My client was very happy and we are going to be doing more in the future. I already have more clients from this job.
