Any of you folks out there into woodworking? If so, you might appreciate my new computer desk I just finished. It's my first real attempt at something like this and overall it turned out pretty good. It's not anything really great, and someone with skills could see all kinds of mistakes, but for my first time, I'm pleased with the outcome. The only thing I would really do differently would be the design. I'd cut back the upper section so that the sides and top matched the middle shelf depth, leaving the desk area the same.
For those with real woodworking skills, my hat is off to you. It takes a TON of patience and time to do these type of things "right"!
