Melamine is not my favorite material, or any one else,s I assume. That being said, my friend wanted a hobby desk for model painting and he wanted it to be black. His budget dictated that we go with sheet goods, but I did convince him to let me trim it in cherry that I stained to match some other furniture in his place. As much as it’s a pain to work with, I did get my first taste of using edge banding, and it was simple and strangely satisfying. I added some simple profiles and such to the cherry to give it a little more decoration.
The desk has a number of little customizations. It had to fit a precise place in his office, and because of this the lower cabinet couldn’t have pull out drawers. Instead they pull out sideways. The table top on the left side also pulls out for quick access to the top shelf underneath in the cabinet. It also has a brush tray in the front and multiple holes to stand in-use brushes in the middle cherry strip. There are also two holes sized to hold his light. Soon I will be adding shelves to the back for his paints and finished models.
