This does the job though.

P.S. If anyone thinks they know where I could get a solid black tabletop with custom dimensions, let me know...

Have you considered one of IKEA's solid pine wood table tops? They seem pretty nice. I'm sure you'll be able to saw & sand it to your liking.

Was tired of not being able to use my entire ikea desk as a full workspace after installing it our closet. As an alternative, I built a custom floating desk and storage shelf last night. Walls are chalkboard for doodles and notes.


taken with an abused 4S

Whats here:
  • Built Mac Pro
  • Dual 23" HD Apple Cinema Displays
  • Cintiq 21UX (slides off wall on left)
  • 2011 Macbook Pro
  • Rain Design M Stand
  • K800 Backlit Keyboard
  • MX revolution... on the left

contemplating adding a 20" ACD on the right wall mounted, to be used with a 360, or just add a DVI multi switch to one of the 23".

why did you want your work desk in your closet?

It wasn't necessarily my desired desk location, but my setup took up a good majority of the basement, which in return really impacted our media room when we had people over. This keeps all of my work out of sight, which can be refreshing to turn things off. It was just a compromise that i tried to make the best of. So far, Im happy with it.

That looks fantastic!

My wife is claustrophobic, so she would hate it, but I would LOVE a setup like that. I have a decent sized home office and I love it, but I kind of like the minimalist setups as well! :P

I do a lot of digital photo post processing and a setup like that (no windows, easy to make lighting accurate) would be perfect. I'd probably install a track of lights directly above the desk using daylight-temp bulbs, close the door, no windows; it'd be perfect!

I have a big walk-in closet, but my wife would KILL me if I turned it into a workstation/office. Where would she fit all of her shoes, after all! The other issue, for me anyway, is the local fire codes don't allow outlets in closets, even a walk in. In fact, the light switch for the closet can't even be IN the closet (it's just outside the closet by the door), all you can have is a small light fixture. So I'd need to find some way to attractively run an extension cord of some sort...
