Thank you M. Sarge! I have a lot to learn and hopefully plenty of time to do so? LOL I do look forward to actually figuring out the right way to do things and learning from you good folks rather then learning through trial and error, and error, and error. My kindling would pile is quite impressive.

Looks great, that’s a nice design, is it your own?

The design, as far as I know is my own. I saw a table at some furniture store that had the crossed legs and it got me thinking (a dangerous thing). I went out to the garage and started playing around with some leftover southern yellow 6/4 and a week later this is what I ended up with. That and an old, nasty, corner computer stand that found its way to the recycle pile.

Thank you! I was aiming for a clean, straightforward layout. Almost spartan in design and appearance and am happy with the way it came out. I am glad you like it also.

Thank you both SAS and Steve. I appreciate it. The only problem now though is my wife likes it a little too much and says I also suffer from NMS (Napoleonic Monitor Syndrome), and need to replace that too!

Very clever and well executed design!

I did a desk for my computer just a little while ago and made it just to my tastes as well.

Great job!

Tom,

Welcome to LumberJocks , a world of advise, opinions, and experiences, all shared without judgement.

Your design is both sleek and functional, plenty of work area and very pleasing to the eye.

Nicely done. – Len

Len, Rusty, Bob and Kraft, thank you for viewing and commenting on the desk. I am proud of it and glad other like it too! Bob, I saw your desk in your projects folder. Very impressive. I only have about a thousand questions for you about it but will try to limit them to the important ones.

Thanks,
Tom

OUTSTANDING. Love the contrasts and the use of space. That piece would look great in any household.
