Default Workbenches and computer desk

I'm about to move home and wanted to know if anyone in the uk has any recommendations for furniture for my work room / office.

I'm stuck at the moment.

I've built my own. Cost around 30-50 for the materials and took about half a day to build.

I agree with Steve, build your own if possible. I have a contact who does warehouse racking, so I've got a 9ft workbench built of racking, cost me a tune up of his machine, win win.

Ikea do have some good bargains at times, else try free cycle on yahoo or similar.

I am building my own at the moment. Thankfully there is a builders merchants next to my office, so I get all the materials for about half of B&Qs price.

Also if you build your own you can easily add a backing board to put sockets and ethernet ports on.

I'm with cadishead on this one. Ikea is your friend.

Taking into account all the hassle with building etc. it's worth the money.

Just don't go for the expensive stuff. 20 workbench, big and heavy. Remember it is a workshop, not an office and should be made to suffer.

Staples have nice chairs !

Yes Ikea perfect. Look at the VIKA AMON/ VIKA ADILS range. They are modular so you can get what you want to fit. I have 5 tables at around 100 - 125. Also I got the higher shelves with the hidden brackets

I would go for building your own, or if you have a reclamation yard/scrap yard they sometimes have desks i've got a few from the one near me in the past.
