The desk is red oak, with a tempered glass top that was originally the glass door from our shower that we renovated. Aluminium tubes were used to join the legs and added as accents to the top. The finish is danish oil and polyurethane. The desk is 68”x29”x27”

Son must like his desk. I love your usage of the shower door.

I have just remodeled my bath and have a shower door that I was going to trash. Thanks for the idea. And your desk turned out great, your son will cherish it for years to come.

Excellent idea! Don’t know if you’re into computers; but your ‘accent’ rails along the back might be a good way to mount flat-panel monitors. I’ve been kicking around ideas for my home office. This one’s got the design gears turning. ;-)
Thanks for posting!

Thank you all for the great feedback, and thanks for the great suggestion Silverback. He is currently using a laptop but if he decides on getting a monitor it’s a great idea. Exel, I really like using the mix of wood and glass and metal and glass is not cheap so if I can reuse pieces I will. We had 4 large mirrors in the old bathrooms that we redid. I used them to practice and make 5 “new” framed mirrors. Turned out really nice and saved a bundle to boot. Thomas, I am still searching for a common artistic thread in my work, outside the mix of materials. I guess one aspect to my work is that I like to try different themes and if they work that’s great. At least I feel I learn something new with each project and the added bonus is knowing that I made something that we use and looks good. It is very satisfying to be sure.

Have your say...
