My room is a little less than 12'x10', and the wood I'm using is 3/4" birch plywood with AB finish (A is the highest quality finish, B is next step down, so the side I don't show). The reason for it is because I wanted to save myself a large hassle with sanding a poor grade wood, which would most likely take days to finish sanding on a piece this large. I'm also sleeping in a normal twin sized bed (39"x75").

I will be painting it, that's in the next set of photos! Also, it's the reason that I used a lot of spackle, I would've never been able to get away with that had I been planning on finishing it with stain.

==================================================================================================

As a heads up to everyone, I will be getting the next batch of photos in today or tomorrow depending on how busy I am. I hope to have this section of the desk finished and in my room THIS WEEK. Afterwards I will begin construction on the other pieces, in order from the long piece with the computer stand to the short nightstand piece.

Thanks again for the support everyone, as I said in the original post, I'll have a few neat little surprises later on when I get the cash and have it assembled. Not saying they're anything huge, but I think you'll get a kick out of some of them. thumb.gif

Build looks awesome so far. I should have done 3 coats on the top of mine before using it. I only applied 1 coat because I was in a hurry...now I may just re-do it after seeing your build thumb.gif

Right now I'm waiting for the paint to cure before moving it into my room, so I think I'll go out to home depot and pick up some plastic cable management tubes a little later today. Also ordered a new mouse pad and it's in the mail as we speak!
