We moved into our place about 1.5 years ago and have done a woeful job of utilizing our space. Dave ended up getting 4 of these nightstands from Ikea; they were the right height and on sale for $50 each. He did make the mistake of leaving the planks outside in the sun one balmy afternoon, resulting in some cracks in 2 of the planks.

This is because this device assures to either benefit or cure the autistic people in more ways than one. A constantly updated resource of inspirational, yet functional, minimal desks and simple workspaces; often showcasing the interior design facets that pull it all together. Thanks to bb, who agrees the best way to get from point A to point B is making out in the back of a cab. I lost all hope for humanity when I saw a guy in a suit driving on the highway with his iPad on his steering wheel, playing Angry Birds.
I doubt any of these are intended for on-the-road use.That said, the idea is great in concept but likely difficult to manage in application. Geekologie is a geek blog dedicated to the scientific study of gadgets, gizmos, and awesome. Rhonda has the kind of friends we all need — friends who give away beautiful solid wood desks on Facebook.
Rhonda's husband took charge of this project, removing all of the old chipped veneer before sanding the wood smooth. This project obviously took a lot of time and care, but is one of those where the end result is so beautiful, all that hard work was well worth it.
Repurposing inexpensive things to create a custom look is the best thing about putting together a DIY home office. Lifehacker reader Pixelsonly has a clean and well-organised workspace sporting dual workstations for Windows 7 and Mac OS X. To continue on our organization kick (all month long, get ready!), we turn our attention to DIY desks. 11. Concealed into Bookshelves: Or maybe you want to sneak a standing desk into your interior design scene? Half-Life 2 cool-designed custom PC is fitted with a water cooling system and three fans to keep the air circulation going cool when the gaming on their gets real hot. I guess that this PC case doesn’t need any introduction or too many details as Digg is one of the most renowned social media websites.
Modder Gup turns the Egyptian Pyramids into entities of fiction with his rather illusionary, beyond the thought Pyramid case mods. Well, I got to hand it to the Russians on this occasion for it is the closest a Wall E mod can ever get! Tech-Daddy from TBCS has just about completed his Boss FX-57 case mod — inspired by the 1969 Boss 302 Mustang. This PC case was made from a John Deere Gas Pump toy and it sure is crazy because when you pull up the gas pump the gas costs only 19 cents per gallon.
The Desk PC case mod by Will Urbina, is cool Case Mod, featuring an actual PC inside the desk, and all the components can be seen through the Plexiglas which acts as the desktop. This clever computer case mod combines the power of computing with the power of the hamster wheel to create a one-of-a-kind rodent paradise. When you look through thousands of different case mods, you start wondering why nearly all modded cases is based on a PC.
WMD is short for Weapon of Mass Destruction, and that’s exactly what this project is all about. Typewriters might be considered the dinosaur of the computer geek of the 21st century, but once-upon-a-time typewriters were the most relied upon piece of office equipment in the world. Transformers inspired PC case mod is 6 feet 10 inches tall, transforms into a smaller desktop mode, has a seven-inch LCD display on its body, two windows on its chest, Autobot symbols, and even has storage compartments on the legs to hold your mouse and keyboard.
Porsche wheel is creativity materialized into a wheel PC mod, first of its kind that one cannot envision even in a wild dream. Geeks and drinking beer does not mix, because drinking one to many types of stouts can cause the monster geek to come out.
We spend the majority of our time in one room and have a lovely, unused loft space which would make a perfect home office for the two of us (well, three of us; Esther snoozes on my lap during work hours).
I know when other people’s homes look nice and I would love my space to look like that but furniture stores give me migraines and paint swatches make my eyes bleed. Even with that great sale, we were still already $200 deep whereas Young House Love was only $6 deep at this point — damn them and their perfect, insanely frugal home improvement projects! We figured it would add character that didn’t cost us $1,800 at Restoration Hardware.

Dave bought a Kreg jig which allowed him to essentially drill at an angle when needed and affix the planks to each other.
All of it looks like things I can handle, the only question I have is what kind of wood did you use?
So there's no worry about driving into a building while playing Angry Birds in an ironic crash. I spend a good bit of time doing work in the car when on errands, and the steering column is (obviously) a major space killer. Practicality, functionality and efficiency are of the utmost importance, yet an ever-growing interest in making this space refreshingly stylish has led to a large number of home office DIY projects.
Some say "squat every day" while others warn "squats are bad for your knees!" The truth is in the middle -- squats are amazing for building lower body strength, but at the same time they can cause problems for the uninitiated. We love that it works as a hallway console when it’s not being used as a desk as well. It’s a pair of doors where one is used as the main desk and the other has all sorts of handy compartments. The inner space here in the orange and silver transparent exterior looks filled with real stuff. At first glance, this case looks to be something straight out of a horror movie, but it's actually a fully functional computer. The ION Cube as Owen calls this case is made using the ZONTAC ION mini-ITC 330 platform and is so finely done both internally and externally. Right, so if your system is running on Windows XP Professional, why shouldn’t your system case be the OS product box itself? Inspired by Stargate this Pyramid HTPC casemod is stuffed in with a an Intel T7200 Core 2 Duo processor, Mini-Itx Crommel LV-677 motherboard, 2GB of DDR2 Ram and a 160GB hard drive. Maybe someone will prefer better case with more details but this one for sure is made with love and a lots of creativity. He teamed up with Electronic Arts to produce a mod based on Battlefield 2142 multiplayer game. The modder took 18 days to get this mod ready which precisely explains why he came this close to replicating the original. The gas pump handle has the privilege to be the power button, push it forward and the John Deere Gas Pump PC is on. I think the guy exaggerated a bit, depicting too much leaking brown stuff on the seat and the sides. We are talking about a real acoustic guitar, cut and trimmed in order to accommodate a small-factor motherboard, a windowed CD-ROM mod with stealth door, a pair of creative I-Trigue 3300 speakers as well as a sound activated blue cathode lighting interior. Too bad you can’t eat the parts though (hardboard) except for the candy decoration of course.
Not only that, but the keyboard and monitor are also modded in the same style to complement it. All parts are fitted on the outside of a cabinet and it’s purpose is just to be a practical design since the user of the PC alternate between different hard drives on a daily basis. Even though it’s not completely finished yet, the build of this bomb is very impressive. It’s nice to see that some geeks still find typewriters useful, even if only to gut them out to build a vintage looking computer case.
This multipurpose computer mod incorporates a miniature Foosball table (mounted on top) with the confidence of computing.
Featuring an 18″ disc from Porsche Cayenne as a shell and an attached acrylic disc brake strip-sponsor nVidia, the wheel PC comes with silencer turned liquid cooling iron and decorative chrome entourage.
Gutting a perfectly good computer system to transform it into a beer keg and tap is madness, pure madness I tell you.
He also used Young House Love’s approach, using a camera tripod to keep the boards level as he drilled. Let's get down to the nitty-gritty of the barbell back squat, and why it's worth your attention.
A new scientific study from the University of South Australia has attempted to find the answer by measuring "hyperideals" in men and woman -- from porn stars to GI Joe figures.
There are people that build up their systems, trying to get the most out of those fancy components.
It was built for the CES 2003 and I guess they have just ripped the interior of the microwave and replaced it with PC components.
Designed for a case competition, the mod along with the PCB boards also has a few cellphone motor bits drilled to fabricate this brilliant PC case mod based on a scorpion.
The guy who pulled this mod off used a Nehemiah EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX motherboard to fit the 243mm x 200mm x 48mm box. Luring the better gamers with the Gforce 9400GT graphics card, the Gup’s Pyramid HTPC casemod also features a LCD display and moving side panel with built in lights controlled by the remote attached.

It has room for a DVD-ROM drive, a floppy drive (who needs such things these days?), a vertical motherboard with integrated peripherals, one HDD, two system coolers and a PSU on top. It is done with a lots of creativity, as you can see wires looks like important part of the shape. There is an orange biohazard paint job on the lid, which really goes well with the over spilling brownish mass. The structure of the desk is made up of two massive panels of acrylic, bolted to a custom-built aluminum frame. The guy deserves some accolades for the intoxicating creativity that he’s shown in hacking a PC inside a whiskey bottle. As detailed and sweet it is from the outside, open it up and the meltdown is shown in all its glory inside.
With this well-laid-out game plan in hand and inspired by our predecessor’s success, I was ready to tell Dave to execute this idea.
When the serious muscle was required, I stepped in and pressed down (or pulled up) on the boards while he drilled to keep things as level as possible.
A well-decorated work space has the power to inspire and rejuvenate, turning the most mundane of tasks into bearable and (dare we say) enjoyable experiences!Inspirational ideas for DIY desksIt’s therefore no surprise that a large number of DIY desk projects have emerged, from the relatively easy to the more intricate and complex. By attaching a Lerberg DVD shelf to the bottom of an actual shelf Pixelsonly created a really slick looking stand that doesn’t look at all DIY or cobbled together. The power supply unit goes right under the seat and the front panel includes a key start to turn on the system, with additional slot load drives and a handy media card reader. Although there are many other inspiration sources, the designer got his idea from the Digg community.
The icing on the cake could be to a load a Ben Burke voiceover for then, nothing would differentiate it from the original.
I wonder if those plastic blocks can take the resulting heat and provide a good airflow inside the enclosure.
Inside the toilet seat we find an ASUS CUSI-FX FlexATX small-factor motherboard, which has built-in video, LAN NIC, sound and even two PCI slots. Water conducts heat far better than air, and you don’t have to be a turbogeek to perform the conversion. A glycol liquid cooling system snakes through the whole of the machine and it has a custom-built Synaptics touchpad built on the top. Replete with glowing things and painted stuff, it might look like an art or science project but it is actually a fully functional PC. Case modding -the modification of a computer chassis- has become a big hobby for thousands of enthusiasts around the world. The processing power inside such a modded case perfectly matches the aggressive design: AMD AM2 FX62 CPU, Swiftech Apogee watercooler, two NV78 GPU waterblocks cooling two 7900GTXs in SLI and, on top of that, a PhysX card. The components had to perfectly fit a custom-made metal frame, which was integrated inside the box in order to prevent any fire-related issues. Full marks for creativity and lest we forget there’s more of game in this mod than visible at first glance. Even if you’re not in the market for a new desk, check out the home office setups below.
These desks can support the weight of your work.The Pottery Barn-inspired desk below has painted file cabinet bases, which hold the top of a disassembled IKEA Effektiv desk.
