Werebo, I like that den you have there, looks very homely, but how do you manage to fit your legs under the desk?
I can't get my back paws completely under the desk, the centre-tray sticks out too far when it's slid out and blocks the chair-armrests ( the tray's too narrow for the keyboard to sit on so mouse only, plus ashtray, writing-area, dinner-tray etc. :grin:), my knees are just inside the cubby-hole :thumb:

Although it's an excellent computing desk that was assembled in '97/'98 (it came in '2x box flat-pack' configuration :lol:), it's too heavy to move, even when the drawers/cupboards are emptied (hence the 'reluctance' to crawl underneath to sort and tidy the cables). Having previously discovered the pitfalls of moving chipboard furniture, I went slightly overboard when assembling this desk, so every single screw, dowel and fixing is also glued in, just to make sure it doesn't fall apart, ever! - I forgot about needing to move the beastie :lol:

Oh, the printer is sat on 2 shallow boxes cos the top of the hutch has a backstop panel, to stop things sliding off the back. This panel now gets in the way of the cables to the printer and router, hence the 2 trays. The modem/router sits on the 2Tb cloud storage box to clear it's cables too, the 'TSF' slip under the printer is to remind Mrs WereBo....... :grin:

Kinda cool spotting odd-ball things you have like that in someone else's pictures.

I'm in construction (new/remodel/repair) and I'm in hundreds of different houses and apartments a year, I always found it interesting that aside from televisions and computers, you seldom see the same furniture and decorations in different houses.

"Back Paws" hehe

I must say I do like the 'Lived in' look that computer rooms, dens and (according to my ex) 'hovels' often have. Its nice to see a work space that lends some insight to taste, character, and personal interest. I have a friend who's tech-space could double for an Intel 'clean room'... but, he says he works best that way so I suppose that is insight in itself. Meanwhile mine is... well, lets just say much more normal. I think we should have a separate thread on work spaces as well... far more interesting.

Hehehehe.... The rest of the room is far from neat an' tidy, although it's a lot better than is was a few weeks ago, the stacks were almost blocking the TV (which wouldn't really bother me as I rarely watch it) - Mrs WereBo is seriously into both textile crafts and paper/card crafts, so the living-room is full of boxes of her stuff. As you can see, it makes cleaning/dusting a long job and decorating near impossible, it'd take a week just to shift everything out, then a couple o' months of complaints cos everything would be put back in the wrong place.... :grin:


@ Rich-M - That is really nice, far more what I'd prefer to live with (no clutter), I'm envious :lol:

Before anyone asks why I used Gen 4 cpu and board is that I happened to have the cpu that I never used and there really is little performance difference between the Devils Canyon cpus and Kaby Lake's newest for what I do. I also really searched for a micro motherboard with a minimum 8 Usb ports.
