Simple and cheap desk out of concrete cinder blocks and a nice pre-sanded board that I coated with polyurethane. Large desktop to spread out whatever I am working on. Tall drafting style desk, stand or sit on my drafting stool. Also angles downwards a bit. Mounted the monitor to move it easily (to reference a document or something when working on the other side of the desk), and keep my handy-dandy index cards on the back. I used a simple peg board to organize and keep my cords accessible.
