    thanks man! its actually the same desk. just without all the gear on it. and damn, 90$..thats pretty good! i spend roughly 150$ (also wasting around 15$ on the poly/stain)
    and a week seems pretty fast..did you have the hardware store cut all of your pieces? because i probably took a week alone just for cutting my boards haha.

    The home depot employee cut the 2x4's And the 8x5 sheet. The rest of the supporting pieces I cut in less than 5 minutes each with the hand saw they were not that thick. I measured everything pretty fast
    I felt I couldn't rest until it was done because I just moved into a new condo, I had no desk to put any of my equipment, it was all just packed up in boxes so I was getting ansy not being able to record. I needed it to do home work, write on, computer, i needed a work bench..it just needed to get done so I made it happen quick

    You've talked me into building my own studio desk. I'm gonna have to draw up some designs and give it a go. Wish me luck.

    That's awesome. Mine isn't nearly as fancy, but it does the job. I'm hoping to build one someday, but considering I have fewer carpentry skills than you claim to, I'd be in deep shit.

    I got wood ... for woodworking ! :lol:

    Seriously, the little "carved" thingies you've put on the sides give it a nice touch, and the desk does look pretty sturdy. As for wood finish ... i'm a fan of plain ol' beeswax (some are colored, like "dark ash" "light oak" or so)

    Hopefully, i will have the opportunity to build a table like this with black walnut and z -shaped silver metal tubes for the legs, just not as long as that would weigh a shit ton!
