LEGO blocks have been used to build some remarkable scenes from science fiction and fantasy, which is what makes Chris McVeigh’s hyper-realistic desk sets so unique. Instead of going over the top with his creations, he devotes attention to small details to make convincing models of furniture and appliances that would fit right in at any 1980s office.

As designboom reports, McVeigh’s “My Old Desktop” series includes swivel chairs, bulky computers, books, and staplers all rendered in plastic. The Nova Scotia-based LEGO builder collects tiny LEGO blocks, knobs, and tiles to construct his custom creations. He even designs miniature stickers to add character to his sets. In this case he used them to make cassette tapes, floppy disks, and rotary phones to sit on his desktops.

McVeigh’s custom LEGO sets are available to purchase on his website along with step-by-step instructions on how to build them at home. You can view some highlights from his portfolio below.
