Default C24 furniture options

Anybody have any recommendations for a desk to house a C24; maybe a built in ISO box, some rack space too? My quick searches turned up the Argosy stuff and a couple of other manufacturers, but having no experience with any of their stuff, it's tough to judge how they'll work in real life. I'm generally a keyboard and mouse guy (never used any kind of control surface before) so I'd still like to be able to edit and mix that way without discomfort -- i.e. comfortable keyboard position and easy to view LCD's without having to look way up high or squinting.
I've seen some complaints on DUC about the un-usability of the rack spaces in the Argosy, so any other power user type info on the ups and downs of any pieces you like would be great.

These guys are the absolute best. I had a custom desk built for composing. 14 feet wide (angled) with racks on either side. Cherry wood.

The Omnirax desk is working pretty well. Only a couple slots have depth issues, just plan accordingly and put shorter units there. Once filled up, it's kind of a bitch to get at the connectors - for replacing a unit in a full rack I recommend pulling the cables through the open slot first, plugging it in, then insert into slot and screw in. Of course for this to work you have to leave some slack in your cables when you build the patchbay.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into details on all these options. Couple of followups:
Anybody using an ISO box for their CPU built into the desk? Effective/convenient?
Also, any thoughts on position LCD monitors in a comfortable viewing position?

I'll vouch for Sound Construction. I've known Todd Beeten for years. He started his business in a small run down bldg across from my studio and has expanded into a major supplier of custom studio furnishings. He does great work.
