Blue Yeti Mic w/ Shock Mount and Boom Setup (Update)

An updated tour of my Blue Yeti mic setup that I am using for podcasting. I use this mic setup almost everyday and really love how it works. The shock mount is by far the best one I have been able to find and works fantastic. Check it out and leave any questions in the comments. Here is a link to the latest our podcast War Thunder Podcast: Thunderbums where I use the entire setup so you can get a sense of how it sounds.

Handmade Wood & Pipe Modern Industrial Desk (Update)

Back in March of 2014 my dad and I wanted to build me a new desk. Actually, I guess it started by me wanting a new desk and not being able to find one I was happy with. After browsing around online I found some cool ideas about building one out of pipes and wood. I really liked the look of it and decided to layout my own and have my dad help me build it.

There are two main pieces to the desk, the main desk, and the computer riser. The desktop has four 1×6’s laid flat next to each other long ways, meeting in the center of the desk and offsetting each by the others length. Thats how you get the zig-zag effect in the center of the desk. We supported all of this with a 1/2 inch thick piece of wood that helps to hold the whole desk together and also support the triangular inset piece that we made right where I sit. The top piece is very similar and even simpler. Its just the same 1×6’s at a 45 degree angle from the sides all cut off towards the back. We cut a piece off the back corner to have a place for all the cables to run down.

The piping I found all online for much cheaper than buying in town. You could get everything you need at Lowe’s but I saved about half of the cost by getting it from Essential Hardware. I used 1 inch rounded galvanized black pipe. I really like the look that the black pipe has but either black or silver is great. It has six legs, two on each end and two in the back, all linked together about a foot off the ground and then secured to the desk by flanges.

The LED lighting came from Ikea and was really a last minute idea that turned out to be really cool.

Thats pretty much it. We didn’t go too far into drawing things out before we really got started. Let me know if you have any questions about it at all!
