I had been needing a nice computer table and had some red oak and solid surface pieces laying around so I designed them together. I like the color combination. I additionally custom made my own drawer handles.
The first two pics show the desk just after completion.
Picture three shows the dovetail joinery I used throughout the leg assembly.
In picture four you see the top for the printer made fabricated from the solid surface.
I wanted to show something interesting that happened. In picture 5 you see the purple heart plug with a dark ring around it. I used a cheapy plug cutter that actually burned the outside of the plug. I found it to still be functional and it would be unique so I thought, “Why not?” I like the look, myself. It was one of those situations that I took the art path and incorporated the situation into the piece.
In picture six you see the computer and accessories on the desk.
Made from red oak, purple heart, and Pecan Mosaic solid surface. Finished with a water base poly and hand rubbed wax. Thanks for viewing.
