    Compared with other posts in the old threads, I feel kinda left behind. But I just don't want to spend a lot of time/energy/money in setting up something beautiful, which I rarely use or doesn't add up to my productivity.

    Not counting the 1 day I work from home per week, I at max sit 10 hours for private reasons per week in my office room - In the winter, even less in the summer.

    First Pic is my normal desktop (In the left corner you can see a part of the docking station for my business notebook).
    Second pic is my NAS/Server corner - The 2 PCs on top are identical and are for testing purposes (Building clients etc. - You can't test everything with a VM). The HP and Synology have modified coolers and you can't hear them - especially since I mostly let music play. (Should get small rack anyways)

    Built the desk out of acacia wood and black iron pipe. The chest on the left, is a sub-woofer enclosure.

    I'm just a big fan of great audio. I work at home and am on the computer up to 12-14 hours/day. I figure it's well worth investing some $$ to get excellent audio for games, music, video, etc.

    Those are M-Audio BX5. they are pretty decent. Generally sell for $150 each, but I got them on sale for $75 each a few years ago.

    I am using a pair of Alesis M1 Active MK2 monitors on my gaming setup. I've had these speakers for over 13 years now. I am using an M-Audio BX Subwoofer which were paired with the BX5's when I had them down here in the garage, but swapped the speakers a year and half ago.

    This is an awesome custom built desk. I was designing something similar last year.

    Thanks.

    I highly recommend the Acacia wood. It is considerably harder than Oak and tools very well. At least in my experience it isn't brittle or chip prone at all. I had no trouble routing edges in it with no breakout even routing with the spin.

    I made another desk for my "office desk" with the same wood.

    Found it on eBay a few years ago. Think I paid about $100 for it.
