I decided to build a desk for the house we bought. Currently we just have small little crappy desk so I wanted something big and better. At my work we sell desks, but for what I wanted i would be paying over $3000. So I made up some plans and made a model in sketch and did a lot of drawing and measuring and making blueprints etc... This is not going to be a project log so there will likely not be progress shots. Here is what I designed in Sketchup. Some of it has changed. All of it is going to have a wood finish unlike the screenshots show and the standing cabinet is going to have doors as well. I use a program called Cutlist to enter all the pieces i need cutting and it figured out placement for them on the sheets of wood I bought. it even calculated the grain direction that i wanted. Here is where I am at now. I have built the drawers, standing cabinet and overhead cupboards. Not 100% done but getting there. I also did a test piece for staining to see what the color is like and how many coats i will want to do.
