Having a household of several children, it can at times be hard to find some space for my projects and equipment. As it was, I had a perfect spot in the laundry room with a whole desk to myself. However, the desk was a bit crowded with my TS-820S radio, my 3D printer, and my home server computer. With this equipment on the bench, I didn’t really have a space to work on anything new.
So, I decided to try to rearrange the laundry room a bit and build a shelf to help organize my stuff.
As you can see in the pictures, the before shot shows the laundry room as it was, with my desk. The after picture shows my new shelf and the shortened desk.
This has worked out incredibly well in the short time I’ve been using it since the switch. The entire contents of the desk are now on four shelves, and the shortened desk is completely empty and ready for me to work on equipment and projects! It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing shelf, but it is very sturdy and quite functional, and since it is hidden away in the laundry room, it is not in view of anyone who comes over. It also makes great use of what was once wasted and empty space.
Linux – keep it simple.
