HAHAHAHA someone is so fired.

Sorry, I really dig crane accidents. When nobody gets hurt, anyways. It's like building a giant Ming vase and smashing it with a baseball bat. :p

Pic of the leper (me :) ) And that was before it got WAAY bad..
Weird. I think i have almost an identical affliction. Same place too, only under the left pec. Though it comes and goes, how the fuck do i get rid of it? It's ugly and it itches.

Any update as of yet to what the desk is looking like? We are all very inspired and very anxiously waiting the next installment.

Hope you realize that this thread has become like crack for those of us that have some mechanical and building capabilities but lack the funds/tools to do so. Showed the post to my significant other last night with drool on my lips and all she could say was "shit, greg no!!" This is especially hitting home because we just bought our first house and I actually have my own office now!!! The kicker is that she keeps saying how much she hates the desk we have right now and I "need to finish" my office!!

Anyways keep them coming, I am working on a drawing of my desk that I wish to build *thank god for the xmas season coming and www.bf2005.net*

One question i do have for you JEN is where did you get the "veneer" for your desk. Reading back, if I understand it correctly, you are basically making a base board with a nice oak/maple/*insert wood of choice here* thin top layer. Is that correct? And where are you buying the actual veneer striping for the edges/end pieces?

Jen, My SO hates you. I asked why, she replied: His exploits are costing us money.

She then stormed off into the bedroom, she came out with checking account info.

While trying to show me, I revved my 18volt DeWalt Hammer Drill with Dual XRP batteries.

hahahaha

keep it up mate.

Freakin Hilarious!!!!

Thanks for Info Jen.... Do you remember about how much it costs. This is more than likely going to be a "Next Spring" project seeing as I live in Carson City, NV and dont have a garage to store, build this stuff in (all i have is a small shed) Hopefully this winter though I will be able to finish my custom computer case for this bad boy desk sometime this winter.

Charged this week (well, 37 hrs.) to sick time, so I figured in order to not feel worthless, I'd work on my desk.

Finished sanding the entire section I'm going to stain this time..

Wiring block typical between sections so I don't have to cut any wires to take this thing apart..

Staining is alot easier than spraying on the clear. i.e. without getting a little clear poly fuzz all thoughout your house.

Limiting what you spray is a challenge to say the least..

Quite an amazing accomplishment thus far, I must say! I can't even imagine how long it will take for you to stain this monolith, though! *faints* :eek:

Suffering thru this process. :)

Yeah it does look good but...


















it will look MUCH better with a few comps, monitors and accessories (mouse, misc. papers, lava lamp and empty beer cans)

My thoughts exactly...now that's a buzz that'll last for days

Came up with a pretty good system after the last time- Enclosed the whole room with construction paper (actual construction paper on the roll) and made a door out of plastic sheet-

Then had the shop vac in the bathroom next door pulling fumes out of the 'chamber' and exhausted..

Then had the back door and front window open.. Actually didn't have many fumes at all..
