Workspace201009 | Rebuilding an old sewing desk to a computer workspace.

The machine and the manual drive were removed from the old Johann JAX sewing table.
The wooden compartment is used for cable management.
A lower board was mounted to rest the keyboard and mouse on. Holes in the table front let the connecting cables disappear inside the desk.
There is only a single cable leading to the desk which keeps the floor easier to clean of dust. The wiring leading from the back of the table up to the computer and wacom board are mounted with two L-shaped screws forming a bracket. This way the computer can easily be unplugged without the cables dropping down behind the table.

The horizontal alignment of all the elements allow me to work in different modes (writing or painting) while keeping an ergonomic pose and being able to comfortably reach the tools I need.

The manual drive pedal was removed, but the metal frame stayed for stability.
A small trap door reveals the bowels of the table.
