Master Craftsman

As promised, here’s a few photos of the monitor mount I crafted for my behemoth of a desk. All it took was a prexisting piece of wood used for the back corner of some shelving, two gate hinges, some machine screws, nuts, washers, and a 5″ square of 1/4″ plexiglass. The wooden piece was lying free because I don’t use the shelves on the desk any longer. I’ve got plenty of space around here, and they never really were as sturdy as I would have liked. Everything went together pretty easy, and came out surprisingly square, considering I pretty much eyeballed everything instead of squaring it up using tools. The monitor seems to sit just a bit off level, which is enough to annoy me if I’m looking at the monitor in relation to everything else, but not if I’m looking at the screen.

All in all, it turned out pretty well.
