This is my first attempt at a computer desk. It’s made from both solid cherry and cherry stained birch plywood. The back is made from 1/4” cherry plywood.

I’m not real happy with the way in which the poly turned out so glossy. It was supposed to be satin, but I think I laid it on too thick with my HVLP spray gun.

Will have to hit it with either 400 grit or a brown paper bag and redo some day.

Beautiful work. I like your design with the “hanging shelves” effect.

Thanks Don. I really should take an updated photo. It actually holds a lot more right now. Translation: Lots more junk. :)
