I made this desk using the torsion box method. It is hard to tell, but there are no legs. The desk is mounted to a large cleat along the wall on two sides and actually supports my weight! I covered it in Honduran Mahogany plywood. My mistake was to finish it using Spar varnish, which gives a softer surface. I guess I should have moved the chair for the photo.

Nice! At first I thought it was resting on the file cabinet, but then I looked at the other end and I knew it had to be attached to the wall somehow.

This is a nice desk that would compliment any office decor. Mounting it to the wall is a fairly novel idea but it does give the desk much cleaner lines as opposed to having legs.

Nice job.
