Building the Ultimate Work Desk – Testing Finishes

by dave on July 28, 2012



As some of you may or may not know (check Twitter if you don’t), I’m in the process of building a desk system.  I loved the look and function of Ikea‘s Galant desk system but wanted something a bit more organic in nature.  Consequently, I went on the hunt for some different options, finally choosing some two inch thick by eight foot long planks of live-edge butternut (white walnut) wood.  Since most of you may not get the chance to do something like this, I figured that you’d want to live a bit vicariously through me so…here’s a little taste of what’s going on, courtesy of my daughter Maddie and my “Apple wants to see it banned again” Samsung Nexus phone from Google (unlocked…just had to put that in there to bust on the largest patent troll out there currently…Apple.)
