Small Project

February 25, 2009 · Posted in Engineering, Photography, Project, Tools 

Last August while Laurie and the kids were staying cool at more northerly latitudes I was here. I decided to remodel our office desk. When we moved in it was a door across two cabinets. Not too attractive. I bought the wood to make the new desk. I joined the planks glued them together and planed them to make each panel for the desk and then I waited for Laurie to get home and clean off the desk. She came home and still I waited. Birthday’s, Thanksgiving, Christmas, they all came and still I waited. But finally late last week she cleaned off the desk, so I could measure, alter, fit, glue, sand and finish the desk. Here are a couple photos:




Completed with everything replaced and running.


Next project: Tackle the cords.  Maybe I should invest in that wireless power technology that Tesla invented in the 1800’s that we still have yet to see applied to everyday life.

    I forgot to mention to notice the wall. Laurie painted while I was building the desk so that it would actually look good when it was done.

    You also forget to mention that I had more important things to do than clean the desk off. Like raise your children! And by the way, you didn’t clean your part off, either.
