I did it, I joined the Sparky Husky Cult! I bought a Husky Tool Chest to store my photography gear and some of my computer gear in my home office. It was part of a home office re-design. It is still a work in progress spanning many years and failed attempts. My many eclectic lighting schemes bear witness to my attempts. Lately, my re-design has been inspired by @MacSparky.
My goal was to get an ultra clean desktop with no cables showing. I managed to hide most of them by building a shelf in the back of the desk (not shown). I have two power bars, one plugged to a ups, the other one, to a surge protector. I still have a few more electrical cables to hide…
Here are the most interesting things in my opinion.
a. Ikea LED lighting strip behind my desk, lighting my cable shelf when I need to sort spaghetti… not shown.
b. Benq e-Reading Computer ScreenBar sitting on top my iMac. My favorite!
c. Nanoleaf Modular Light Panels below the lions picture above my desk. Love the daylight setting that floods the whole room.
2. Desk features
a. 12 South Compass iPad support
b. Ikea recessed NORDMÄRKE Wireless charger
c. Ikea recessed NORDMÄRKE USB charger
d. Power/USB recessed outlets (lots of recessed stuff due to lots of re-design/drilling holes…)
e. iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) and extra monitor on a double arm support
f. Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500 on a retractable arm
g. Ikea SYMFONISK WiFi bookshelf speaker aka Sonos. Great Sonos speaker!
h. External drives including a RAID 0 - 4 SSD disks for maximum speed. Yes, all backed up using local drives and a Synology Drive backing up offsite to another old Synology. I’m using Synology Drive as my Dropbox replacement.
3. Office features
a. The Husky Tool Chest of course. I didn’t carve out foams to put everything in specific slots (except for my camera lenses). I think I will make compartments but not specific shapes.
b. Umbra Hangup Photo Display Cloth lines.
Let me know if you have any questions.
