Well it’s about time I cleaned up my office enough to take pictures of my furniture I built about 5 years ago.
Made of teak and imperial brown granite, it measures 80 in. X 80 in. X 26 in. deep and was made from scrap granite left over from a large kitchen job. I bought a sheet of teak, edged it with solid stock and solid stock feet, and finished it in polyurethane. Shelves on upper corner cabinet are also granite. The tops are laminated by book matching the front edge of granite with a 3 in. strip of granite and then the rest of the bottom is laminated with 3/4 in. plywood for strength. The keyboard drawer is made from solid stock teak, with slide out for the mouse and pad. When slideout is slid in, then the keyboard will slide out of site. This is a work in progress as I have a desktop that matches and teak panels, that are ready to go together, but I still have a drawer bank to build along with the drawers, and then granite drawer fronts to make for them. It should look pretty cool when all done. Thats my fiance on the computer screen, so all you horndogs can quit drooling over her, she’s spoken for. LOL I just had to say something about her, as I’m very proud of her, and she’s smart as can be, so I can’t understand why she loves me.!!! Someday I’m going to do something about those blased wires that look so messy underneath, never enough time.

Gorgeous office space, Dan! Next time you have some “scrap” granite laying around, let me know. Thanks for sharing.

WoW! I’ve never seen a granite PC work table before. It’s gorgeous! Somehow my recycled laminate one isn’t quite as exciting right now. I think I’ll send you my address just in case you feel the need to build another one.
