Arcade Cabinet Desk

I already designed an Arcade Cabinet Standing Desk, thought I’d make one for sitting people. This was inspired by my L-shaped IKEA desk; lately I’ve been thinking about giving it a Pac-Man vinyl cover, because its laminate surface is in rough shape.

Just need colorful t-molding around the edge of the desk surface, and a marquee for the leg (which could be back-lit if you want to be fancy).

Star Trek Desk

Star Trek Tom Spina

Recently I had the privilege of collaborating with Tom Spina Designs, makers of the famous Han Solo in Carbonite desk. The gig was for another desk, this time a commission for a client who wanted something special for their office: a desk based on the bridge from the most recent Star Trek films.

Star Wars Desk

I came across this old idea where I mentioned the landing pad from Return of the Jedi would make for a cool desk. I thought I’d put together a basic concept.

Originally this design had a bunch of catwalks connecting the two pillars underneath the desk, but I removed them because those would destroy your knees (Updated May 22/2019).

And yes, you could adorn this with figures and vehicles, making this a play set too.

Floating PC Desk

This was inspired by DIY Creators’ Floating Desk, I just went with a Floppy Disk look. The disk holes make for really good grommets! This is a generic design, I think it would look cooler if it had a Commodore 64 or Apple II theme.

You could probably build a PC into the back panel if you wanted, or at the very least incorporate a power strip into it, for tidier cable management.
