Are you using MDF for the top/side wood pieces and plexi glass for the transparent areas?

That is a good idea.. i will need to think it over because my project is already huge and i don't want to make it any bigger, but thanks for the input it could be useful.

All the desk will be done with MDF ,replacing the wood i already have on the desk, because of two reasons.

1) Its a bit scratched , opportunity to make all the desk new
2) Don't know if i can get the same color for the bottom and top part, so don't want to risk it, so doing all desk..

Actually its not Plexi glass, that was first idea as well. I found some1 that can do it for me with glass, a bit costly but i think its worth it

This will be a gem. Assuming it gets completed. I've seen too many desk mods begin and not finish. Some manage to finish and are fantastic, while others finish and leave quite a bit to be desired. Hopefully, this falls in the first category. Looks solid so far. Have you done any renders?

That its going to be completed that for sure, all ready got most of the materials, i haven't spent 300 euro just for nothing and still spending tongue.gif
The project should be finished in about 2-3 Weeks , it may fall of track a bit because i love perfecting details, because its detail that make one project a success

PS. What do u mean by renders. Sorry English is not my first language
