Ferro cement desk 1

Ferro-Cement Computer Desk

Do you want to build a sailing boat and be off to Tahiti? Strangely enough you can. There is a long established method that people use to do just that. The building technique uses cement reinforced with a lot of fine wire and is called ferro-cement. This technique uses very inexpensive materials but a whole lot of hand labor.

It also takes skill, so maybe you want to start with a small project before you build your boat. How about a computer desk for your garden?

Ferro-cement construction forms panels 3/8 inch to 3/4 inch thick that are very strong and can be shaped in a great variety of curves. In fact you can easily make any curve that occurs in boat hulls. This makes ferro-cement a good media for really far out desk designs and so can be used by students for art desks. It's extremely weather resistance also makes it a good choice for computer desk in a garden.

A commercial version of ferro-cement was used to achieve the distinctive shell curves of the Sydney Opera House.

Our current design is for a simple garden table that can be used with a lap-top computer, for eating a picnic lunch for two, for playing games like chess, or for gardening.
