    Just looks incredible, stunning work. But you really need to find some proper LED strips as they are kinda ruining the craftsmanship. Could you maybe put a piece of frosted acrylic over the LEDs to spread the light more?

    I am no expert but I agree the led strips need a "diffuser " a piece of frosted acrylic over it the way it is Dee tracks from your amazing craftsmanship.

    Guys. You are right. This wasn't what I expected. I'm now changing this concept. I will show you effects later this weak.

    Today, I want to apologize for image quality.
    Second, I changed the whole backlight. From the "back" of the desk it is perfect. There is no trace of differences in the intensity of illumination. Front I had to solve otherwise. It is very good, but not perfect. For lower light intensity you can seen a slight "wave". Unfortunately, this is the end of my ability at this budget.

    I've took a picture of the "feet" after polishing wax. You can see delicate satin sheen.

    Except for a few small details next thing to make is a computer installation. All the time, I regret that I have no sponsorship. I can't afford a decent configuration. So next time please don't ask me whats inside :)

    Project completed. But you have to wait for a photo sesion, because I do not have the conditions to do decent photos of this desk (it's a little too big). Maybe I can track down a place in Lodz, a photo studio that did not rip my skin and will have a large entrance on the ground floor :) But it might take a while.

    I hope you find somewhere to take photos. This level of craftsmanship deserves more attention.

    I think this is the end. In time, I just want to change the configuration of the computer. At the moment it's based on the Core 2 Duo E6600. And this is rather a museum :)

    There is no point to dwell. Here are the photos.
