[Scratchbuild] Lizard Desk - completed. Final photos.

Recommended Posts

Long time since I have dealt with modding. It is time for a new case. This time it will be a computer desk.

As always, I work without a final plan. I just have a general vision :)

I've started from the top surface of the countertop. I've glued four oak planks with a total width of 60 cm. Ultimately, I would like to receive the white, smoked oak color. So to spice up the surface I've added some inlay in the shape, you don't guess by looking at the title, lizards.

I've cut out the individual elements, this time with a fine beech wood:

I've tried at this stage to deep-stain the wood. Unfortunately, the color not sufficiently penetrated the wood :( I'll worry about that later.

Now I had to mill the space in the countertop to paste inlays.

You can see both: the traced outline, milled channel and already embedded element.

Two days later, I had the inlay finished.

There is still sanding and leveling the surface.

I want to make desk countertop to be in a wedge shape. That's why I've added the triangular edge bands. Then cut them lightly.

And then I've sanded them. (Oh, how I do not like this dust).

I've "merged" some pvc in the edge. At the moment it's just an operating test. I wonder what color would be the best here :)

Some pictures from gluing. I'm using wood biscuits - lamellas.

There are never too many clamps :)

Deck already took final shape of the wedge. I've sanded it initially too.

Vertically it would also look nice :)

In order to properly shape it I have glued several layers of wood. Already it is tiring. And as I think about grinding and shaping ....

Today arrived a secondary touch screen - it will be ejected from the side table.

Yes. It's what I like the most. Half of the day I was grinding and milling. Bonding the second half. And looking at the pictures you can't see the effect.

But I estimate it's about 30 percent of the total project work progress.

I've already slightly molded one connection.

And glued the second one.

Thanks :)

The end of the table will contain a "drawer" with the motherboard. The rest I must fill with oak.

According to the project name I've put a carved lizard on the leg. Yet it's still a little "raw", but this will change :)

As you can see "lizard" is already in place. The particular shaping will take me a lot of time.

The Connection between leg and top is already more or less made​​.

I've changed a lot of wood into dust :)
