After years of dreaming and several weekends over several months spent sourcing, measuring, figuring, cutting, building and painting I have the desk of my dreams. It’s beautiful! So beautiful I never want to leave it! (j/king in a couple weeks we leave for a couple months, but I’ll get to come back home to this!)
The desk is built from 3/4″ black iron pipe and has a 3/4″ custom cut bamboo plywood top.
I’ve long wanted an L shaped corner desk. I like to have extra room on my desks and I like to stretch out my legs, so this arrangement is perfect. I’ve looked for years for something just like this and could never find it. Ikea’s Bekant desk comes close and was very tempting, but wasn’t quite perfect. Not to mention there is no Ikea in Hawaii and they won’t ship to Hawaii. I could (and have in the past) arrange shipping myself but it gets expensive fast. Combining this desk with my treadmill desk (just out of the pictures to the right) I now have the work environment of my dreams.
If people want I’ll try to put together a more detailed write up with pricing and how I planned and built it. For now though I just wanted to share the joy and the photos!
A few detail shots of the beveled edge of the bamboo plywood. Note: I was planning on cutting and staining the top myself. I hate staining and I’d have whimped out and done a straight cut on the corner instead of the radius, so I’m glad I hired that out, it was crazy expensive, but they did a fabulous job.
