_The_ Desk!

After a long time of trying to come up with the perfect design, I finally began to build the main piece of this flat: the desk. For those interested, I was using Qcad to draw my plans.

I cut the press board with a jig saw and finished the edges with some putty.

Some bracings to stabilize and to absorb most of the interaction.

Now comes the finish. I used water-based varnish which I DO NOT recommend! I'm regretting this decision ever since, for the surface wears off very quickly.

Anyway, do you notice the hole beneath the desk? This is where the cables will go through to the PC in the anteroom. Keeps the noise out!

Finally! I'm getting close to my dream of a perfect desk!

Isn't it just beautiful? ;)
