My bedroom is really small, so when I went looking for a decent computer desk, I found out two things. First off, most desks that were small enough to fit the space didn't have any shelves above, or the shelves were practically unusable because they were too small. Second of all, any of the desks that I found that looked like they were of good enough quality to last more than a few months were at least $200, and many of them a lot more than that. I'd say that overall I'm really satisfied with it. I plan on adding some decent lighting to it soon. and some small shelves just above the monitors to hold my speakers. Other than that I don't think there's much else I could improve upon. I love having all the open space in front, which allows my to have my keyboard, mouse, a book, notepads, etc. all out at once without feeling cramped. So instead of paying some ridiculous amount of money for a computer desk, I knew I could build my own for a lot less. My only real needs were that the desk fit in a 4' wide space that I had, was sturdy enough to last a few years, and had some shelves above it. I didn't need it to look all pretty like the ones in the stores, and the unfinished wood look is actually something I like, so that worked out well. I sketched out a couple rough designs, and settled on a 48"x36" desk area with two 18" deep shelves and one more smaller shelf on top. I planned out the different lengths of wood that I'd need ahead of time, and the most efficient way to cut the pieces. This allowed me to walk into Home Depot with a sheet that outlined exactly how each piece of lumber, including the plywood, needed to be cut. Since HD will cut the wood for you, I was able to basically leave there with a desk that was ready to take home and put together. As for materials, the 4x4 and 2x4 are plain Douglas Fir, and the plywood is 3/4" sanded Birch. The Birch has a really nice pattern to it, and being sanded made it a lot easier to finish off the desktop before putting a varnish on it. I also used #10 x 2-1/2" screws to hold the large pieces together, and some small Simpson l brackets with #6 x 3/4" screws to hold the shelves to the upright pieces. I think the total cost came out to about $110 with everything, and I even had a few extra pieces of plywood that I used for shelves around my room. all in all, it worked out really well.

Our storage shed. The fridge and deep freezer were both knocked over. You can see the water line on the door. The smell was pretty bad, but quickly got worse when the fridge was put upright and the door swung open and the contents spilled out. My mom said the odor was offensive. Daniel said the smell didn't offend him, it violated him! We all almost puked a few times.
