Now-a-days, computer desks are pre-designed and pre-engineered
and can be assembled easily wherever and whenever required.
These modular desks are provided with custom defined components
as per user requirements. They contain any number of shelves and
storage racks which can be increased over time. The height and
width of the desk can also be increased with the addition of a
few more components. The main advantage of modular computer
desks is that, they can be designed to fit into the exact
dimensions of the space provided
All the components are provided along with the nuts and bolts
for easy assembling. A manual is also provided which contains
instructions to assemble the desk. By following the manual
carefully, even the most complex-looking computer desk can be
assembled within no time. The main components in a computer desk
are: the front frame, back frame, bottom rails, upper frames,
back aprons, pedestal base, pedestal base sides, tip edge
strips, upper and lower dust panels, drawer front, center drawer
front, back and sides, file drawer sides, and backs and joiners.
There are many books and resources which provide free plans for
building computer desks. There are also many websites with
information about building computer desks.
There are some points to remember building a computer desk.
First, ensure that the desk is sufficiently close to the power
points. Secondly, the wood used to build the desk should be
strong and durable like oak or cherry. As solid wood expands and
shrinks with changes in humidity, care should be taken to allow
space for changes in dimension while attaching the main
components. Maximum gluing surface should also be provided for
more strength. The number of storage shelves required should be
planned in advance and some space should be provided for
attaching more shelves for future expansion. If the CPU is to be
put in a closed space, there should be sufficient ventilation
inside. Retractable keyboard trays free up space on the desk and
also help to keep the keyboard free from dust.
