With limited space comes excellent inspiration. Look at this Folding Pallet Computer Desk/Chair that's built out of a little more than one pallet, some plywood, and some craft rope!

Here's a little information on my Folding Pallet Computer Desk/Chair:

To build the folding computer desk I used one pallet, and additional loose pallet boards that a local pallet shop had. Also, I used a piece of plywood and some craft rope. I sanded the large pallet down until it wasn’t splintery, and set it aside. Next, I found a piece of scrap plywood, but it was a little thin, so I added some decorative pallet boards in a chevron shape on the bottom side to strengthen it. Plus, this looks good when the desk is in the upright position. The advantage of using a light piece of wood is that I didn’t have to buy specialty hinges. I hinged the plywood along the bottom inside so that when closed they weren’t visible. Finally, I used the craft rope to help hold the table in place when open.

The folding table is mounted a little higher so that I can use it standing if I chose for quick computer usage or taking a message. If I want to spend more time on the computer, I use the tall bench I built. This is a straightforward assembly, but it does have a secret: pocket joints (such as the Kreg jig pocket system). It’s an easy way to make sturdy joints that are easily hidden. To finish, I stained everything and sealed it with a water based polyurethane. Hopefully, my projects inspire you to use small spaces in big ways!

Great idea, like the sloping seat chairs and the mitres in the detail.
