Nice! What finish did you use on the top?

I stained the wood with a nice Early American stain and then I finished it with a clear semi-gloss polycrylic so that it would hold up to the typical abuse a desk may encounter. Since I knew it wasn’t going to be in direct sunlight, I chose the semi-gloss. However, if there was a direct glare I probably would have chosen something with less gloss.

This is really nice and well done.

Will the top raise to an incline to make it easier to work on? If not, easily remedied by putting hinges in the front and raising the back. But that’s not mine. ;-) You did a good job on it. I like a glossy finish!

Nice design and execution. My back hurts more when I’m working at a desk than when I’m working labor jobs, so I’ll end up making something like this eventually I think

Very nicely done, and a cool design.
