Computer Monitor Riser for My Desk

4 Hours
I needed some extra room on my desk for my setup, I am a bit of hybrid, I enjoy gaming, production work, and of course blogging, so I figured I would get me a computer monitor riser, and as is the case with a couple of other projects, everything I came across looks super cheap, plasticky if that's even a word. Since I built my desk I figured it was apropo for me to build the riser. I am super happy and have lots and lots of additional room. I'm into this project about 25 bucks, that's because I brought the top panel already assembled and ready for a finish, and I brought poplar for the draw fronts, other than than I made the rest of the riser out of scrap wood. check out more pics of this build on my blog
I'm ready to play a little Fallout!!!
Here it is ready for some painting and finishing, as you can see from the finished pic, I went with a black top and stain the draws.
dry fitting all the components after I built the draws. truth be told the draws were more of an afterthought
YES the draws fit!!!!
As you can see the wood I used was scrap these pieces had huge nail holes that I patched.
