Well, Fred, It looks like you did a very nice job on the desk. It looks like it works well as well.

That’s gorgeous! I plan on making a computer desk for myself in the future. As a computer programmer I need space for two desktops and a laptop. Do you have any suggestions, tips?

Thanks for the comments. I actually built this awhile back and moved it over to my sons house and assembled it. I told them to use it for awhile and I’ll build the top part after they decided what they wanted for storage on the top of the table. I should take a picture and post it on how it looks now with all the computer stuff on it, and then again after I finish the shelves and cubbie holes I’ve already built.I finished it with a walnut stain and poly (gloss) finish.The kids love it and I can only see all of the mistakes that I made. I am learning to not explain to anyone about all of the mistakes or how I’d do it differently the next time…..

If they can’t see the mistakes then they really don’t exist! ;) I really have a hard time with that as well.

Pretty nice set up Fred. I have to make a computer desk for my new iMac, but I’ll have make it lower because of the large screen. Bifocals you know.

You know Dick as I sit here typing this reply to all the nice folks that comment on our collective work I have to keep moving the chair up so I can see my screen with my Bifocals. Pretty soon I’ll either get a nose bleed from being so high on the chair or I’ll have to start cutting the legs off of the desk that I have. Bottom line is I made the desk for my 28 year old son and his wife. They both have excellent eyesight at this point in there lives. But just wait until there 49th birthday at midnite—then they’ll both need reading glasses like the rest of us.
