Welcome to LumberJocks tommytompkins.
That is a great looking desk. What did you use for the actuators? (where did you find them)

Nice job, some very cool details you incorporated into it. That hickory looks great there and the shop pup surely approves. Now clean that pigsty up some, would ya?

Thank you for the warm welcome! I’m using actuators from windynation.com.

This is a very nice drawing and drafting table. It’s a real beauty and a great addition to your shop.

Thanks Charles! This will be used as a computer desk more than a drafting table, but the tilting features are very nice for better ergonomic keyboard and mouse placement with the wrists. There’s also a monitor stand component that goes with this, but that’s kind of a separate project in itself.
