I'm sad I wasn't here for the beginning of this build. Subbed!
Heh, don't you worry, there's still plenty of life left in this project!

There should be a category on Overclock.net labled "Pure Awesome-ness". And you should be in it.
Haha, thanks jellis142, you're making me blush

Thanks for providing such a great update fellow Canadian
I always wanted to make my own desk, might end up doing it actually... seems quite easy.
Thanks shnur! Go for it! And make a nice build log for us too!

Thank you, Robitussin, for the kind words!
Well, got some time to start the staining of the cabinets this weekend, and overall, everything went pretty well. Started off with a bit of detailed sanding by hand, and then a good dusting with a tack cloth / cloth with paint thinner.
And then went to work applying the stain with a clean cotton rag
They both turned out pretty well - these pictures were taken after only the first coat (A second one will go on). I find that this stain really shines once a coat of poly is put over it.
Let me tell you - getting the inside of the cabinets was quite time consuming and I really did a number on staining my arms...
Eww! It looks like a heart!
