  1. Beautiful Setup. If I were you I would try and loose the glass top on the desk so it is all wood.
    But that is just me.

  2. Hi guys,

    Just the timber would be nice but since it’s made from an old pallet it’s pretty darn rough and would result in a lot of splinters!

    The stand is the standard one that comes with the screen, it can be rotated around to portrait mode!

  3. Hi guys,
    In my opinion the glass not only adds to the aesthetics of the setup with its contrast to the old style wood, but also offers a practical use. Ever tried hand drawing on paper with a rough piece of wood behind it? Its not much fun, drawing on paper with glass behind it however is amazing.

    Nice setup, simple minimalistic.

  4. Can you please tell me where you got the tuff glass from, and roughly how much it cost. I’m creating a similar desk using recycled scaffolding planks. I have wall mount my 24″ iMac and just need to sort my working area. Using a mouse on scaffolding planks sucks.
