DIY Recording Studio Desk Build

This is the photo blog of my desk build. I will start with saying that I have very little skill in carpentry and this is the first thing I’ve built like this besides some gobos and bird houses in high school.

It cost around $300 to build and that’s including rack rails. Here’s a quick list of what I used.


x3   4’x8′  3/4″ sheets of red oak

x2 8′ standard 2’x4′

x2 8′ 1’x3′

x2 8′ 2’x2′

3/4″ trim for the edges

Other things included are screws,wood glue,nails,ebony minwax stain, black minwax polyshade,rub on poly

The only electric tools used where a circular saw,orbital sander,12v drill.

This just goes to show you that anyone can build their own desk if they want to. A studio desk like this would cost well over $2000 but with a lot  work and planning ou can do it for around $300.

I don’t have any plans for this desk as most of it was made in my head. I did a lot of research and reading though. The better you plan the better the results will be. If you have any questions about this build just email me at jack@jackdanielsrecordings.com

Thanks for reading!
