This is a computer table I designed and built to suit my Mac.
Legs are are Amercian Black Walnut. Desk frame and drawers are highly figured American Black walnut. The trays (one each side of for left and right handers) and other flat surfaces are all highly figured Sycamore.

Very sleek and stylish, I bet my son would like this to go along with his Mac Pro… and I just happen to have some walnut QSawn boards in storage.

Nice job Patrick! Just curious: did you consider a stand up desk? That might be in my future, so I’m collecting peoples ideas.
Thanks,

Definately the right addition for a Mac !..........You could just use some 2×4’s and MDF if you were building one for a PC….. :)

This seems like it would welcome a Mac on top with open arms. Excellent design for this purpose and clean, appropriate lines as well. Speaking of lines and angles, did you angle the legs and drawer fronts to match the angle of the screen? It appears to be pretty close, although the legs might be a bit more angled?

This is one beautiful piece of furniture, from the wood combination, to the design, and right on through the finish!

Great job with the photography as well.

Excellent design choice. I like the side drawers and the pull out is a nice feature to have.
