My Computer Room Desk

Posted: February 26, 2011 in Woodworking

Every woodworker who owns a computer dreams of building his own desk.  This is mine.  It is actually part of a grand project to redo the library in my house.

I looked for a design for some time.  I finally found this one in a woodworking site.  I think it cost me $10.

The material is oak.  I used walnut inlays to accent the top

As always, raised panels and full extension draws

 

I found this new stain from General Finishes.  The color is Candlewood.  It is a beautiful and deep color.  I have used this on many follow-up projects.

  1. That’s come out really well. I only wish I had the time to build something similar myself! Looking forward to seeing future work on the library.

      Olly,

      Thanks. Wait until you see the matching cabinets behind the desk! Once I finish my master degree, I will get back to the woodshop and I will start the book cases and trim.
