The DIY spirit is strong with our team. So we decided to do BYOD another way. Build Your Own Desk instead of Bring Your Own Device? Why not. We dedicated some Friday afternoons to our furniture project and are quite happy with the results.
First we made sure we have all the pieces and tools we need.
Afterwards, some dust protection for the rest of the office was needed.
Moving on, here comes the real deal. Bruno Renié, Lead Developer, and Antoine Coetsier, CEO, making sure it’s all going smoothly.
Almost done with one of the extra meeting tables, Antoine and Marc-Aurèle Brothier, Senior Software Engineer.
If you want a close-up of how sturdy the desks are, check out the construction.
We used 27mm thick cross-laminated wood. For measurements, in case you want to go all DIY on your own office furniture:
The finished desk results can be seen here:
And of course, for lunch and meetings with differences in the leg construction:
