  1. For more a month on the project I devoted only my free time, which is very rare. The desk is already finished. Now I'm going to installation phase.

     

    To do list:

    -Light.

    -Frame for touch screen.

    -Installation of the screen.

    -Installation of USB ports.

    -Installation of motherboard "pocket".

    -Installation of power and lan ports.

    -Installation of drawer for keyboard and mouse - I do not know yet how it will look like:)

  2. After a long break, a few new pictures.

     

    This is the final version. Surface waxed and oiled.

    Break was caused by the onslaught of work. 

    Then I had lot of problems with bleached surface.

    In short, I had to clean and sand again everything once again.

    I was hoping to finish before end of "coolermaster mod contest" but I certainly do not have time to do this.

     

    Now I will work faster. I hope

  3. Effects of grinding. By the way, "I patented" a new grinding wheel for polishing and longitudinal grinding machine for this job :)

    To be honest I've enough working in a dust mask for x hours a day.

    And now biiig request for help. Color effect that I wanted to achieve - that is smoked oak, does not go as I would have liked to.

    So I did some wood samples. Speak up on them.

  4. Now the desk is standing.

    And this time, I'm sorry for the quality of my photos. Tomorrow I will show some update.

    The "foot" is parallel to the tabletop. Height 80 cm. Bevel/slant is made only due to perspective. Foot still requires a lot of work. But the general shape of the structure is now visible.

    Another interesting aspect is the center of gravity. As can be seen it is strongly shifted toward the "leg".
