New desk - simplest thing I've ever made

Re: New desk - simplest thing I've ever made

Hi @Benni85  Nothing I have on it is heavy but honestly - I could put an old fridge on it and it wouldn't bow. The way the panels are made makes them very strong.

Hey @robchin! Chris Mac here.

 

Did you end up coating the desk top at all? If so, what product did you use and how did it come up?

 

I'm planning on copying your project very soon 😊

HI @cmac_1987 

Not initially but I did after a couple of weeks. Concerned about drink spills marking it. I ended up using a water-based matt finished clear varnish. Cabothanes from Bunnings. https://www.bunnings.com.au/cabot-s-1l-water-based-matt-cabothane-clear-polyurethane-varnish_p152040...

Thanks @robchin. Came out great 🙂 Two workstations for the price of one.

I pushed the outer legs towards the edges and added a centre leg to give two distinct work areas.

Well done @cmac_1987 , Kooks very good. Looks like we got our stand-up desk and floor mats at the same place as well :smile: What's next project?
