free plans: how to make a
Computer Monitor Shelf
Basic Description The space around one's computer is often particularly valuable. At uniqueprojects, we are consistently battling with the clutter on and around our computers; below you will find one of the remedies we designed for the problem. It's a simple plan for a shelf that fits on top of most computer monitors. The shelf can be used to hold all sorts of items: picture frames, notes, papers, and lightweight peripherals (such as computer speakers, small scanners etc.) In the end, this project allows you to convert wasted space into highly usable space.

step:       2          

To begin, simply measure the width and depth of your computer monitor. You can make the shelf wider and deeper than the monitor, but you shouldn't exceed the dimensions too much because the shelf may become unstable. We matched the dimensions of the monitor exactly. Cut out a piece of plywood to the dimensions that you just measured. The front face of many monitors have a slight curve to them, and if you would like you can set the cut wood and transfer the curve to the wood. Subsequently, cut to the line with a bandsaw, scrollsaw or jigsaw so that the shape of the shelf will match that of the monitor.
