It's been a while! I had just changed positions and locations at my job (well, at least coming up in a month) and the best part is it shaves 3 plus hours off my daily commute! This gives me my time back I lost 10 years ago to continue doing what I love! Building Cases!
 
Today I have a project on a larger scale....I'm building a U-shaped desk with two builds in it! Because? The wife is sick of looking at my three (all different) desks in my office with 3 different builds! This desk will contain two of my current builds....no new fancy expensive components (can't afford them) just a nice clean looking office and desk layout! I'll show before and after pics when the project is completed. The design is about 70% completed and it should start taking shape over the next few weeks!
 
Specs:
  •  Size: 11 feet wide x 7 feet deep with matching shelves (1 foot wide) wall mounted. The desk top is 24" deep
  • Cost: I'm thinking around $1,300.00 to build
  • 8020 Aluminum Extrusion in the 2525 MM size at various lengths
  • Acrylic 1/4" thick, matte black, clear
  • MDF Board at 3/4" & 1/4" thick wrapped in faux black wood vinyl wrap
 
 
Here is the design:

    Looks like plenty of room for multiple projects?
