Computer cabinet armoire will keep your computer close by, allowing you to hide in an attractive piece of furniture while not using it. Building plans for computer armoires are available on the Internet and in woodworking books. Building a self can save money and let you create a piece specifically for your needs and home decor.
Select Armoire Plans for Function
Choose plans that match how you use your computer. A gamer might want space for a big screen, while people who use their computers primarily for email or pay bills can settle for a small screen. Generally, laptop users will not require as much space as desktop users will need. But if laptops choose to build a computer cabinet armoire, it probably means they need a dedicated work space and somewhere to accommodate their peripherals.
Inside the computer cabinet armoire, the plans should include a desk height shelf where the keyboard or laptop will rest. The keyboard shelf should be wide enough to hold a keyboard with space to maneuver a mouse. CRT monitors are bulky and heavier than the flat screens that dominate the market today. These plans will leave you with an armoire with a bigger footprint than you may need.
