And if I were to design and build a desk, it is going to be a MONSTER. The last one I drew up in SketchUp was a 7 foot tall L-shaped desk, 5 feet long on one side and 7 on the other. And that's just the basics, it also included wire management underneath, cabinets up top in the hutch with recessed under cabinet lighting, chrome fixtures, and carbon fiber accents. As well as a dual monitor mount and built in power outlets, USB hub and front right, left and center surround speakers.
So yeah, it would cost a bit for me to build a desk. lol Not to mention, I no longer have any of my power tools. They were stolen out of my garage several months ago. frown.gif

haha man, your building a NASA desk tongue.gif

Oh yeah I did enjoy, it looks WICKED! What are you using the pilot switch for, lights maybe?

I still think that you should have integrated speakers on that thing like Pioneerisloud suggested thumb.gif

Yeap, Using the Galant frame but the shape of the desk is identical to my Galant desk only difference is the top part, that the PC fits in.

Only reason am not using the Wood from my desk is because i wont be able to get the color of the top and bottom part of the desk the same color, because IKEA desk is made out of Chipboard and am using MDF, so its easier just to do everything from scratch.
