How To Build A Flat Pack Recording Studio Desk – Ikea Style –

Ok, so, in a back to front way of doing things. Meaning, I made a video first, received a request on how I did it and have now put together a PDF with all the gubbings on how I made my very own flat pack recording studio desk for about £300.

I made it with the intention of being able to easily dismantle it if I need to transport it to a new location.

Here’s the original video, which I recommend you use as a reference.

I would highly recommend getting the pieces cut by your local timber yard unless you can do that yourself.
I have given you the number of 18mm MDF boards needed to cut all pieces from.

Your only custom jiggle will be when you come to fit the keyboard shelf. I couldn’t find a link to the original sliders I used and they vary massively. I have left this out of the PDF book purposely.

Here is the link to download the PDF file which has everything you need to know apart from which tools to use.
