My wife has wanted a corner desk for the office since we moved in January of 2015. I designed the desk in Sketchup which helped out tremendously. The overall dimensions are. 31.25” high x 91” Long x 30 ” deep on the long side, and 72” Long X 25” deep on the short side. The base and drawers are made out of plywood and the top out of 2×6. I added a 3/4” roundover to the edge to soften it up.
I applied a pickling stain mixture that I found online that starts with a Dark Walnut base stain followed by a White Pickling stain. I then used 4 coats of Polycyclic as a topcoat. I was wanting to use an oil based Ploy but was afraid it might have yellowed after curing.
My wife picked out the drawer pulls and I added Accurid full extension soft close drawer slides. The drawers are all 26” deep.
It’s not without mistakes, but the main thing is, the wife is happy.
