Now that is a project with style. I love the Ash accent strip running around the desk,, also love the way you have book matched the fronts.

I would be curious as to how the legs are made and attached.
Do you have a spline inserted between the top and sides?

All in all a beautilful and smart thoughtout desk

Amazing build and such a beautiful blending of colors, from the wall to the table and speakers. Nice.

Thanks everyone! What a warm welcome :)

Martin, you’re bang on it. It’s a Sony A6100, which is my backup camera, I do the majority of my shooting on my Sony A7iii.

Madts, the legs are custom made, I welded them from 2" plate steel and 1 1/4" tube steel. If you want I have a YouTube video showing the whole process here:

I have 5 biscuits keeping the corners together on each side, and the cabinets underneath add a lot of strength as well!

Nice. Wondering if my trusty Canon 6D would fit in :)

Do you have more pieces featuring the accent detail?

-- Martin Sojka,

I really like the computer drawer. Very inventive. Overall a beautiful project. Well done!

I spend a lot of time at my desk. It’s easily the most used piece of furniture in my house. Heck, I’m sitting at my desk, right now, writing this post. So when I decided it was time to upgrade my desk and build a new one I really wanted to pull out all of the stops. And like with any good project I really wanted to push myself and try to do things with this project that were outside of my comfort zone. I’m super thrilled with how it turned out and I can’t wait to share it with you.

I really value neatness and order in my work areas, so one thing I really wanted to do with this project was to simplify and streamline my work area. To that end, I’ve got to great lengths to hide wires and integrate things right into the desk. Like my computer for one. Instead of having a big bulky computer in my office I discretely integrated it into one of the drawers.

This was probably my most involved and challenging project to date, but I’m super glad I did it.
