Yup, should have done it the old fashioned way in the first place. The paint cones worked great for the stain, I was able to get both sides done in one shot, but with the poly, the board was sliding all over the place on the cones. Ended up picking out all the bits, sanding, and re-applying another coat of poly, basically, would have taken just as much time as the "old-fashioned" way!Major_A wrote:Doesn't that suck?

Thanks camaroguy1998 - estimated time of completion? I hope to be sitting at the desk, assembled, within a couple weeks. How long it will take to acquire hardware components, setup the wiring, ventilation, cable management stuff, is anyone's guess. Hopefully not too much longer!!camaroguy1998 wrote:Major_A wrote:Doesn't that suck? Spending all that time to apply the stain, then the finish just to have it slip and collect some saw dust.

Do you have an estimated time of completion?
Definitely looking forward to the finished desk!

Thanks skier! Getting there eh!skier wrote:looks phenomenal
Thanks Major_A, not even close to that much! I think I'm looking at between 500-600 for materials, paint, sandpaper etc. I spent quite a bit more on that for some extra tools, blades, bits, clamps, etc... however.Major_A wrote:I love it. Any idea how much this set you back in parts? Looks like an executive desk that would set you back at least a grand at the store.
Yup - it's all good though, hopefully there won't be any ~actual~ major setbacks from here to the end!smack323 wrote:sorry to hear about all the re-work. so close then you have to go back and do it again. I hate when that happens.
Thanks rhymin man ;) Turned out great, by the way! CHeck it out!lordvic wrote:Little set back, but it's well worth taking the time to correct it.
Anyways, your desk is lookin' fine along with that fantastic shine.
Heh, I'm sure there'll come a time when I regret having such a beast of a desk, but while I have it, I'll enjoy it!DJ Tucker wrote:looks fantastic. very good job. used to have a big tall 10ft by 6ft 5 stack shelf unit that i made with my pc and paino/ketboard in mind but got rid of it after i moved house but now i moved to an even bigger house and seen this i want mine shelfing/pc rack back
