Ya we sanded really lightly with 220 grit and it made the desk so much better.

Dude that desk looks like it will be killer. I am working with one of those $40 desks from Wal-Mart currently but after my baby is born I am going to gather the materials (money) and build my desk.

Thanks for sharing biggrin.gif

Ok... Update for this weekend, busy busy busy.

Saturday... spent the day applying 2 more coats of satin clear coat and sanding with 600 grit sand paper in between.


Sunday........... (note extra periods) moved everything out... comp 3 monitors speakers desk. Measured again to make sure. Cut the 2x4s. Went out to buy 3 - 3 1/2 inch screws to bolt my 2x4s into the studs.. guess which part of that went wrong?



Sunday Photos. Sorry for some bad picture taking I got really frustrated at one point, you will see.


Borrowed Stud finder... Thing had a screen on it redface.gif.... best stud finder I have ever used.
photous.jpg


Screws I bought and the L bracket to lock everything in place.
photo1joc.jpg


2x4s all cut to length required.
photo2qg.jpg

Rage time... This was one of the 3 philips head screws... Whats wrong with the picture....

photo3uo.jpg

So yea. This is after my drilling the pilot holes and everything. It was barely into the stud, I nearly burnt my screwdriver out trying to get it flush. Gave up at this point... time to bust out some power tools to get rid of problem...


Grinder ready. Set. DESTORY!!!
photo3uo.jpg


Note. Top screw cut off hammered in. Bottom screw was a 3 inch drywall screw, the last one I had in a box. Thing went in so ******* quick I couldn't believe it.

Note to self. More expensive screws not better. These things were 50c a pop... the drywall screws were like.. 10 bucks for a box of 100? ugh. Ok. Next update coming soon.

I wasn't too through with picture taking today, got off work was like 3 days without my desktop couldn't stand it anymore so I just put it together as fast as I could. I'll let the pictures I did take do the talking. Will finish up the rest of the paint and cable management this weekend.
