Handmade computer desks, built from kiln dried reclaimed wood. Popular with people who want a chunky, practical desk that looks good, these wooden desks are solid, full of character and will last a lifetime.
The legs can be removed to transport/ store and are joined to the top section with large, heavy duty coach bolts which complement the look and feel of the wood. They can be ordered with or without a sliding keyboard shelf, drawers, cupboards or shelves (see below).
Reclaimed wood computer desks
Chunky computer desks made from reclaimed wood – these desks are built to order based on your specifications.
The wood used in the desks is around 3.5cm thick, giving a very chunky appearance. The standard dimensions for these desks is typically 65cm deep and 75cm high, although this is very much up to you. The width is entirely your choice but tend to be between 80 – 180cm.
Our standard computer desks are a basic ‘n’ shape. However as we build these to order there are many optional extras such as keyboard shelf, drawers, cupboards etc that can be added to make your desk truly unique.

These wooden desks can be ordered with various optional extras, the most popular being a sliding keyboard shelf. For these I use double extension ball-race drawer runners and reclaimed boards for the shelf itself. Optional extras include:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
All our computer desks are shipped unassembled for transportation and easy installation. Typically all you will need to re-assemble is an adjustable spanner and sometimes a screwdriver.
Get in touch via the contact form, or give me a call on 07789 381989 to discuss. As these handmade computer desks are built to order I would typically draw something up in Sketchup before starting work to make sure we are both happy with the design.
Assuming the keyboard shelf is spanning between legs on the desk, the minimum height is around 95mm. This can be increased to anything you like as we make the keyboard shelves specifically for your keyboard. Bear in mind that this may impact on your leg space under the keyboard shelf, or the overall height of the desk (see next question)
There is always a bit of a tradeoff between leg height under the keyboard shelf and ergonomic desktop height. If your keyboard is very tall then making the overall desk taller may be the best solution. Get in touch to discuss
Generally a man with a van. There are a couple of different companies that I use, when ordering send me your postcode and I can get some quotes. Alternatively you are welcome to collect or send someone, I’m based just south of Bristol.
Generally no, I use Danish oil to finish the desks which is hard wearing, safe and can cope with coffee cups etc. If you knocked or dented your desk you could give the affected area a rub down with some sand paper and touch it up with Danish oil. Given the fact that these handmade computer desks are made from reclaimed wood you might decide that any extra dents are just adding to the character!
