When I got up this morning I had an 80 lb dog stretched out in that space. It was a little tough trying to climb over her and get the door open. I never would've thought you could transform that area into a working space. Looks good. Great job!

Heh, I'm a little bigger than an 80 lb. animal, but I'm still a dog at heart!

I have a few loose ends, but I think this'll work well for what I need.

Just finished up the last parts of the desk- a means to secure the laptop drawer in place for travel, building a leg for the flip over desk part, and securing it to the dresser top.

The desk looks great. The drawers all open and close ok, correct?

You are like me, very visual, using pictures to make your point.

I knocked together this little table in about 3 - 4 hours using only my brothers table saw. It is specialized enough to handle my ham radio stuff but not so special you can't eat off it or even take it outside.

The reason we chose this floor plan was the big empty space in front of the picture window that can be used for all sorts of stuff, like radios, computers, homemade furniture, whatever.

If you can't find what you need, make it!

Yep! When the desk is "deployed", they're a little awkward getting to and, in fact, I haven't tried with the new leg for the flip over keyboard shelf. But my goal was accessibility when it is closed.

Just touching on this again since I've had a little bit of time actually working from my camper/desk. I think most of these pictures have been posted, but I did put together a blog entry of the build process.

Longest story short, I'm very happy with it. There are a few issues that I'm still working on:
1) The distance from my chair to the screens is pretty far; I've had to pull the laptop off of its shelf a little and the screen is at the very front edge of its shelf.

2) The dresser top and thusly the keyboard and mouse are a little tall.

3) My chair sucks. I want to add a foam pad to the seat, but we have been using it for a wheelchair for my daughter. I'm hoping that this fixes #2 a little. We'll see.

I'm all ears for ideas for good collapsible chairs.
