Thank you guys !!!!!!

I'm very glad you like it. REALY :)

And today.......

Now it's the kind of dabbing. A little sanding here, and grinding there. Unfortunately (it takes time) this is necessary.

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.

I'm still making some tests. I will show it, when it will be ready.

And waxed oak on the bigger plane looks like this.

The sample shows it really badly. I know :)

All the time, however, I would like to "lixiviate" surface.

We'll see.

PS. I look forward also to any other suggestions. Even the pictures. Maybe I can duplicate it.

how about something like oregon pine?

I think it would look a little to yellow.

This is how whitening with Perhydrol looks like - concentrated hydrogen peroxide.

But I do not I avoid staining. The effect is good. But not sufficiently uniform.

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

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:)
