Well, the first part of the office furniture is finally done. I am hoping to get the computer switched over to the new desk tomorrow night. It may take a little longer though. Just in case you have not been following the blog, this table is made mainly from two 16’ 2×16s that I found at home depot. The finish consists of two coats of Zinsser SealCoat followed by two coats of Minwax Polycrylic. The finish was sanded with 220 between coats.

Thanks for looking.
