After making a couple of desks its time to take it to another level this time i came up with some ideas to lift the desk with lifting columns.I also decided to lift the sreens with a lift column. The desk can be used by small and big people you can even stand up and work at the desk.
A render of the design.
The lifting columns for lifting the desk.
The lifting column for the screens.
The main material im gonna use to build the desk is 3mm thick aluminium. Time to make the body.
The 3 pieces i need cut with the lasercutter.
Time for some bending.
Then i spotwelded the pieces.
Then i start working on the covers for the columns.They are also made out of 3mm thick aluminium.
This is how they look.
Then i cut 2 pieces of aluminium for the sides and spotwelded them.The i finisht welding the body and did some sanding.
More to come.

Time to make the mobo tray en the cover for the 4 casefans.
The pieces cut on the lasercutter.
Then i bend the 2 pieces.
Then it was time to make the standoffs for the mobo.For this i used 8mm stainless steel with M4 thread.
After that i drilled the holes for the mobo in the mobo tray and mounted the standoffs on the mobo tray and placed it inside the desk.
Time to mount the mobo on the tray.
Time to mount the fancover and this is how it looks at this point.
Time to make the back cover.
First i cut a piece of the right measurements and bend it.
I want the cover to go with the design so i cut the pieces for the corners.
Then i weld the pieces together and did some finishing.
Then i made the side pieces for the cover with the holes in them for the 80mm casefans.I was so busy making them that i already finisht them and then i realised that i forgot to make some pictures.At that point i spotwelded all the pieces together.
Spotwelded the side pieces on the cover and finisht welding them and some sanding ofcourse.
Time to fit the cover and this is how it looks.
The cover is stil not ready but im satisfied how it looks so far.
Next job is to make the cover for the desk feet.
First i cut the cover.
Then i bend the cover.
Because it was not possible to bend the whole cover i had to let to small pieces open. For this i cut 2 little pieces of metal and spotwelded them.
Then i welded the cover and id some sanding.
The cover is finisht and this is how the cover looks.
Then it was time to work on the oak top for the desk.
To give the top the same design as the desk ik had to saw the corners.
Then i sanded the corners.
This is how the top looks on the desk.
The top is not finisht yett so more in the next update.
