I have a stack of 5 particle board Desktops i grabbed from Maintenance before they got chucked in the wood hopper, but not before the legs and metal file cabs were destroyed. These are 5 ft wide by 30 in deep and about 1.25 in thick. Most have the cabling holes cutout already. I was originally going to take some electrical conduit (its cheap) and bend leg supports to make a tilt-able drafting / crafting table, but our vendor came and picked up the industrial conduit bender the week i decided to do it (after sitting on or warehouse floor for no less than 7 years, lol ). The desktops are in decent shape other than some of the laminate is beat up.
Some ideas i was entertaining:
-Strip and sand, carving channels with a router for artwork(router on particle board?), finishing with a clear epoxy to level and smooth. would probably paint the particle board since there is no wood grain.
-An audio/studio mixing desk that would receive audio from a headphone jack, illuminating an overlayed sheet of acrylic lit with LEDs as a visual representation of audio received, and a mounted power supply rack underneath the desktop (could probably fetch a nice sales price if done right)
-quick and easy re-laminate job
-chuck them because i'm too busy
Anybody interested? We could attempt to raise funds for oh say an internet upgrade or you could take one for personal use.
