Small desk? No problem. Take some tools and creativity and reDIY.

When I got my computer, I didn't think about the space it would occupy in my desk, as you can see, it barely fit. It was kind of annoying having that table on the right and a real trouble getting to the USB ports (which are in the back), also there was no place for my speakers, Ahhh!
