Awesome work, mate. Building your own table is certainly a must in todays age of businesses selling sub-standard products. How are you going for cable management? Have you considered wall mounting your screen and creating a bench underneath the the desk for your case to create more space?
Thank you so much for posting the photos and materials list of your gaming bench project. Your new table looks very strong and stable. Perfect for your PC, monitor, and display case. I totally agree with @Remarka6le, nothing beats building your own table. You know what materials went in and how strong the fittings are. Compared to buying an overly priced soft table. The Merbau timber top wins without question.
Again, thank you for sharing your gaming bench project.
