Workspace of the Week: Video editing palace

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Will Rodes’ control center:

This week’s office choice exudes the Unclutterer motto of “A place for everything and everything in its place.” The desk is organized into stations based on the type of work that needs to be performed in each location. For as many cords and cables that are present, there isn’t a single rat’s nest to be found. And, the whole desk system was built by Will himself: “I built the L-shaped desk. I framed it with 2x4s and topped it with 1/2″ plywood and then covered with indoor/outdoor carpet from Lowes.” In his submission to our group he even includes images of the construction process. I am significantly impressed and so thankful to Will for sharing his office with us.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Wow – this is nice. I used to work in video production and it seemed like there were 2 types of work spaces, beautiful ones like this, and ones that were completely cluttered. Nice job on the cable management – that’s very tricky in video.

    2×4’s and 1/2″ plywood? OMG! That thing must weigh a ton! Looks nice though.

    My husband the broadcast engineer loves this!! His office is actually similar. You need to understand that the cords ARE managed: they are accessible, not tangled, and clear as to which goes where. Being able to see them is not always a bad thing.
