Modular Desk Extension (Part 1)

I told you before that when I was trying to fit all the modules I build in my modular cabinet that it didn't really fit. So I talked to Gerrit my furniture builder about a solution. We decided to build two extensions to the existing modular desk. The first one of those is in place now. You can see it in the picture on the left. This cabinet can hold about 40 1U MOTM format modules. I will use the bottom row for the power supplies and I will fill the rest with all the drum modules I'm building and two gate sequencers. Probably also some logic modules like clock dividers and some other stuff. Gerrit used the same wood as on the modular desk so it really looks like it was supposed to be like this from the start. Gerrit is now building the extension for the other side. That one will be a bit different.

In the picture on the right you can see the extension from a bit further away. If you look closely you can also see the PC speaker in the cabinet. I used this one until now to have some sound on this side of the studio. But now I also have room on top to put some better speakers on there. Well for now I'm happy with the extra space. Even though I didn't all these modules yet, I do have plans for them and even some PCB's. Hopefully Gerrit will some with the other extension soon. That will be made on the right side of the desk and will hold only 19 inch modules.

It's nice to see your progress, your modular is already quite big!
