    I might have forgotten one or two things but....I'll get back to that later. It's not over yet since a lot of things might be added soon! ^^

    The cherry on the cake, the thing that is making all of this happen =>

    The Cross desk

    So after waiting for a LONG time I finally get the desk of my dreams. I was at work at that time so I was lucky someone was home to answer the door!

    I just couldn't wait to get home to build all of it :D
    Wasn't really expecting it to be as big as it was and certainly not as heavy. I carried it up two flights of stairs and by god was I beat. Glass is really thick and heavy too lol.

    Main body, accessories for the Cross desk and glass:


    The feet:


    Let the building begin with the instructions ^^


    I hope you won't mind but I didn't really had a third hand to photograph everything while I had to work my way through holding the two feet straight up and screw the back-hex onto them.

    But here it stands in all its glory :D


    I've also added my two reservoirs to see if they would fit ^^" I did everything on "theoretical measurements" so seeing that it was a perfect fit was such a huge relief!
    If you want more pics off the reservoirs just click here!

    Pictures of the reservoirs were taken by LinkWed. He does some GREAT pictures and you'll see him soon in the buildlog pictures as I'm sure he'll swing by sometime ^^

    Thanks Charles!



    I did a bit more than that though....but that'll have to wait for tomorrow! Tomorrow: Unloading my case labs and getting desk ready !

    Thanks for reading people and if you have any questions / remarks to give please do. It's my first "real and serious" build log. I only wish to learn :D
