It may be slim but it has lots of storage

Mark has this great looking slim desk hacked from the Akurum kitchen cabinet range.

He says, "It's an implementation of this hack, with additional low cabinets and an extra workspace: This thin desk allows us to use a guest bedroom as a home office and provided plenty of storage.



Each workstation on the desk was composed of 1 39" wall cabinet, and a Vika Kaj leg. We also secured it to the wall using a simple "L" bracket. We used some felt covered feet to raise it off of the floor a few inches. The desk tops were somewhat of a wood working project: 1" poplar joined and stained. We also made keyboard shelves and mounted them with glides purchased at the hardware store (They are Blum brand, which I believe Ikea uses them in their kitchen cabinets).

Then we attached the wall cabinets to 2 "over the refrigerator cabinets", set on Capita legs."
