Today's featured workspace comes from reader bcarpenterfh, who created a beautiful glowing desk for his home office. It's pretty much all there is to the space, but sometimes all you need is one really great piece of furniture. So how was it made? Bcarpenterfh explains:
It was all pretty straight forward. I first designed it on SketchUp, knowing the wood size and thickness I'd be using. The main tools used were a miter saw, cordless drill, nail gun, and palm sander. Each piece is glued and screwed/nailed together. Cutting and assembly is the easy part. The sanding was tedious. I wanted to keep the natural look of the wood, as I think its beautiful. I sanded up to 220, then applied 2 coats of a flat polyurethane clear coat (no stain). The glass was ordered from a local glass shop, and I got the lights from a dealer in China.
Obviously there's a lot of skill and ambition involved with something like this, but if you want a really cool desk and a great (probably multiple) weekend project you might want to consider following in bcarpenterfh's footsteps.
