Thanks for checking out my custom built desk PC. Please leave comments and recommendations. The table is made from solid oak stair treads. I used dovetail joints on the corners. After that, it was glued and clamped. I sanded starting with 80,120, then 220 grit sandpaper. I used an ebony stain from Minwax to achieve the color shown. The legs in front were made from some deck railing posts I picked up from habitat for humanity, while the back is supported by a French cleat. The desk would have been smaller if I had ordered a custom piece of glass. However, tempered glass that is 5/16" thick is about $300 for the size of a desk. So I went to habitat for humanity again and bought a shower door for $10.
Some things I'm working on fixing :
- buying a monitor with a faster refresh rate
- cable management ( a little difficult when the holes that are usually in cases have to be drilled.)
The white bar that goes along the back is an axle to allow the glass to hinge up in order for me to access the guts of the computer.
This desk took about 3 weeks to finish. Thank you!
