sorry this was a double post , HMMMM
Yeah but what does yr music sound like????
Thanks Paris. I'm probably going to do two layers of thinner sanded AC ply for the desk surface to get to a roughly 3/4" thick top as two of those 4x8 sheets are actually cheaper than a single sheet of 3/4" BC ply and will have a nicer top. I hadn't thought of using ply for the sides though. May have to cost that out versus 1x4 and 1x10 lumber.
Man, this is a great thread!
Is that a used condom wrapper I see next to that used Kleenex?
No offense meant, but your desk would benefit from some tidying up. I agree, it is too small. From what I can see in the cropped picture, I think you should have plenty of room to install a larger desk.
keeping it sweet and simple....just like a Tele....

24 track, is this you in the video, and is this your channel?
I don't meant to be critical, as I also have some old IKEA furniture that I bought a long time ago, before I knew better. I am simply posting this here to raise awareness.
IKEA was founded by Ingvar Kamprad, who was an old ****, with deep ties. Part of every dollar everyone of us ever spent at IKEA went into his coffers.
As if that were not enough, IKEA is also responsible for illegally cutting down virgin forest in Romania. Turning healthy trees into particle board, which would normally be made from recycled saw dust. Their philosophy is to make "cheap" furniture that falls apart, so they can sell use new cheap furniture at a later time.
There's more... they've also built furniture that was so unsafe that it killed a number of innocent children, after furniture collapsed. All those particle board joints just don't hold weight. Bookshelves, for example, should never be built from particle board. Particle board is a material that will bend, then snap.
Their particle board is also laced with formaldehyde. So, when you place a lot of their furniture in your bedroom, you are breathing that stuff all night.
Anyway, I have not set foot in IKEA in quite a few years now. Plenty of other choices.
We now live in our son's apartment, and our stuff is just crammed everywhere ( but I know where everything is)
So my real desk is the easy chair I'm always in, and my phone, or the seat in my Altima, and my phone.
But here is my desktop desk ( used on occasion) with acoustic guitar ( Blueridge today) 2' away.
Look closely you should see a '66 Corvette, '63 Aston Martin, and '70 Plymouth 'Cuda! ( I have growing collection)
* need to dust, I know!

No, it is not a used condom wrapper.
Yes, the desk would benefit from some tidying up.
I'm considering this, the RAB LS840 studio desk.
Nice setup and room! Also great to see another desk with Hot Wheels on it...
Pretty good, I think. Here's a song I wrote two weeks ago.
The cramped quarters make recording cumbersome and I put it off sometimes. (Or just capture guitar and vocals with an iPhone.) I also would prefer being centered between the monitors when mixing rather than having them both to my right, but that's the best I can manage in the space I have.
I’m retired. My wife is still working, claiming absolute control of the second floor office. This is where I work when I need to escape the cacaphony of the dogs barking.
Oh yeah a total mess! But I get a lot of practicing done here so it serves its purpose.
My only desk is mostly for tying trout flies - and a bit of guitar playing. The only room that I have to myself is too tiny to be a man cave so I call it a toy box. the other end of this Room contains about half of my guitar collection and my main amps, more sporting goods, guns, a sound system and my vinyl collection. It's pretty crammed!
No, Im too shy to be in pictures! LOL ( yeah right)
I like to see how different people solve the same problem , some really creative solutions. i also like to design and build my own studio furnature .
this is a proto type rack i built still a little rough but I wanted to see the concept. if I made it 3 rack rails high on eack level , it could be for euro rack synths , 4 rack rails high studio gear , 5 rack rails high a moog sytems 55 synths, lol
this one is 4 rails high as a test
Wow you have a whole Office , too cool (I use the same dyson )
This is my recording/practice space. It is also used as a place to store hand tools, as I enoy working wood with them.
Toshiba laptop, Scarlett 18i/6 interface, Roland XP 80 for piano/synth sounds. For audio playback I'm running through a Carvin PA620 head into Squier 10" PA speakers.This room is 10'x10'; no amount of acoustic treatment could actually make this a proper mix environment. I mix on 'phones and listen back on various set ups to get my mix as right as I can.
Desk is a computer desk.
Amp is a modern Bandit mic'd with an old Shure 545SD Unidyne III. Amp on the bottom is a Peavey KB300 keyboard amp, which I sometimes run bass through when jamming on it. Bass is recorded direct, always.
Guitars and basses currently in use.
Pedalboard. I prefer simple.
To the left was where the closet used to be, as this is the middle room in a trailer. I removed the sliding doors and built a workbench into that space.
This is where I work on/repair/setup my instruments. Like many here I build my own.
