Planning to build a computer desk.

Written by Dave Markel


Much like any other piece of furniture, selecting computer desk plans requires a little bit of fore thought. There are a number of questions that you need to ask yourself before committing to a design. This will save some disappointment afterrepparttar project is complete.

Consider these 10 points before getting started.

1. When planning your office make sure there is sufficient power close to where you plan to put your desk. It is possible to have power points right at your desk if there are computer components that are only used occasionally.

2. Use a species of wood that is going to be able to resistrepparttar 116181 heavy weight ofrepparttar 116182 computer components. A hardwood species such as Oak or Maple will providerepparttar 116183 strength needed to resist these forces.

3. Usingrepparttar 116184 right species of wood will resistrepparttar 116185 weight ofrepparttar 116186 computer components butrepparttar 116187 joinery used should also providerepparttar 116188 maximum gluing surface area and thusrepparttar 116189 maximum strength. Joints like dado's forrepparttar 116190 carcase, dovetails or finger joints forrepparttar 116191 drawers and mortise and tenons for any end grain to side grain connections.

4. Be aware that solid wood expands and shrinks with changes in humidity. This is important on any solid wood project and should be accounted for when attachingrepparttar 116192 desk top torepparttar 116193 carcase.

Surf Waves with Jack Johnson

Written by Jesse S. Somer


Like a laid back, relaxed beach vibe? Surf waves in reality, musically, and onrepparttar Net with Jack Johnson.

Lately Iíve been listening to some pretty cool music by some beach bum named Jack Johnson. The tunes he plays really touch a chord within me. They are just so honest and selfless, like stories being told by a wise old palm tree that has endured countless days of peaceful monotony, and yet have also experiencedrepparttar 116180 rare tropical storm with gale force winds. I decided to have a look for his website, as I have come to know that humans have written about just about anything of interest onrepparttar 116181 Internet.

I found out some interesting things about this soft, rhythmic flowing voice and guitarist on his official site, http://www.jackjohnsonmusic.com. The guy is hardly a beach bum; heís been a pro surfer, is a popular surfing film producer, andrepparttar 116182 weirdest tidbit of knowledge isrepparttar 116183 fact that he didnít really want to be a famous musician at all! Heíd rather surf some waves, and maybe thatís why his music is so natural and unforced-he hasnít let his popularity affect his priorities.
