So I decided to finally get some work one on my desk.

Phase 1 is complete which consisted of creating the basic structure.

Phase 2 is complete which consisted of upgrading the structure and staining the desk

Phase 3 is complete which consisted of moving the desk in to my new place

That was definitely the goal of this project, I wanted Eyefinity capable desk, and a place for my speakers and receiver, and I wanted to do it as simply as possible.
