Iiyama monitor:
(UK) I'm not sure what this is sold as in other regions. If anyone knows please let me know.
Floating shelf brackets:

Cool custom prism brackets (thanks Joe!):

The hover pen seen on the desk is pretty neat as well:

FAQ TIME! If any of you have any questions, leave them in this thread and I’ll update it as they are asked :) Q: What tool was used to round the wood corners? A: Here in the UK it’s often called a surform, but rasp is also a common name Q: Isn’t the monitor too high? A: Slightly. It looks more so on video due to the perspective but it’s still pretty comfortable. It was only mounted there for this video anyway and will be moved somewhere else so I’ll make sure to have it slightly lower this time. Q: You’ve made loads of custom PCs… which ones to you actually use? A: Currently I use the brass and leather build for editing at the studio, and the large silent desk PC (the one with the glass front) is at home and used for photo editing and some gaming etc (though to be fair I haven’t played a game since last Christmas so it’s a fringe use case at the moment). Q: Have you considered watercooling the PC itself? A: Yes! I went with air cooling as it’s actually pretty decent (I still need to make some minor tweaks) but I do have plans to try watercooling the thing at some point. Q: Do you plan these videos? I mean do you make blueprints or you just have a general idea what you're gonna do and just make up on the way? A: I pretty much always just have an idea of what I want in my head, and then think through the process needed to get there, and then make it up as I go along. Q: Is making ROpost videos your primary/ only job? A: YEP! I’m so grateful that I can do what is basically my hobby as my actual job. Q: Are you from the UK or from the US? A: Very much the UK. Q: Could you use a hydraulic system to lower the monitor in a more controlled way? A: Absolutely! It would make it more difficult to push upwards though, so keep that in mind.

Would it be too dangerous for the screen to hinge back towards the wall? That seems more natural

Arguably it would be much cleaner and more practical to mount the display flush on the wall. You could even inset it and make a kind of roll-shutter in front of it. That way you wouldn't have to hang such an extremely deep board up on the wall (which is kind of weighing down on you as you sit in front of it) and wouldn't have have your desk at a certain desk too to make it usable. This really just works if space is no issue at all. 4/10

Turn the monitor on its other side, and then put the hinge so that it lowers fr front to back. This results in the monitor being much further away and a better distance, plus protects the screen while stored away. No need to thank me just pay it forward

I just had an idea, what about having the screen to fold down from the front to the wall, to give you more space at the table, due to the screen is flush with the wall... What you think ? Edit: this way, the screen cant be seen if you think about it ;)

This is pretty cool! If I were to change one thing, though, I would take a wooden beam from the PC table to the monitor desk, hollowed out in a U-shape and finished to the same color as both. Adding a diagonal to the top would make it look more like a support, and the U-shape would house the cables. This, in turn, would make it even less obvious there is something hidden, as a hanging plant can still show some of the wire. Bonus points if you make the same wooden shape on the other side to make it NOT look like a floating desk!

it's like with Linus Tech Tips. if he makes it like a tutorial people are: Why is it like a tutorial? if it is not than he gets lots of hate because one rich guy with a lot of free time wants to also build such a thing or people may think it was faked.
