This is a fake beamed ceiling and bookshelves I did with angle ripped plywood. (Thanks for the ideas guys). It really turned out cool, Looks a bit exotic. The only thing I did not like is the rounded corner on the desk. Lots of work and not real happy with the result. It sure made for a great office. Done very cheaply, compared to real wood of course, but was very labor intense. Hope you all like it.

Hey functional and sturdy are the hallmarks of a good office. It looks like you have accomplished both.

Ok, I give. How do you do that “angle ripped plywood”? Can you point me towards the post or something?! That looks way to cool!
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

It is cut into 3-1/4 inch strips, then ripped at about an 11 degree angle on end. It is a lot of work and tough on a saw, but the look is fun.

Have your say...
