I haven't thought about how am going to finish it yet, but i think i know the color . Its a semi Gloss Black. Full gloss is too shiny , and mat is just too mat for me,, so going for something in the middle.

You may want to do black and then coat that with varnish/poly with the correct sheen you want. That way it is much stronger and can take daily abuse.

Subbed!

I love desk builds!

Been planning a desk build for a couple of years, but never seem to actually get around to it. Always something more important that needs my attention/money.

Looks awesome so far! Can't wait to see the end result.

In reality it doesn't really cost much....the desk only cost me 110 Euro till now.

50 euro for the MDF wood (3m x 4m) more than enough to make a desk
30 euro for the paint approx haven't bought the primer and the paint yet but should be close to that amount.
30 Euro for the Plexi-glass

Using my own hardware not the best in the market but have no problem with i7 with 8gb ram, SSD and crossfire so no need to update. Usually a desk build costs when you update your hardware as well tongue.gif that would be cool btw if you had the cash. But anyways you can always update your Hardware later.

So lets go back to the subject... it only cost me 110 Euro till now plus a few gadgets that i got cost price because I work as an IT and we work with lots of Computer stores that give me excellent prices .

......

Going to work on the desk tomorrow morning for at least 6-7 hours so should have really nice pictures,, ill try and take my camera this time because am only uploading picture taken from my phone ...

I don't think I would build my PC into the desk. Not really my thing.

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
