I had decided to make some changes to the desk and I was really excited about them. I thought they would bring so much more to the project. Then it clicked.....

So what I had planned was reducing the size for the glass encasement so there was room for a keyboard tray of sorts. It would also have been possible to place a glass front on it as well. Then it clicked. I was planning on using MDF as the base of the table, and I want nice natural, not fake, grain. If I do this, I would need to fake it and I do not think I could pull it of, nor do I really want to. So back to the original design.... almost.

I do think I will make a couple of changes though. I will get rid of the small raised control panel. Instead I will have the CD's coming out of the front in the centre, and I will put in a button panel on the centre surface area.

I have also decided to only have 2 monitors on my side of the table. I will go with seeming biggish, 24+ inches with a vertical 22 inch monitor to the left hand side.

Finally, instead of the draws in the middle, I was thinking of a Shelf, halve the width and also limit the depth. I can then make a small enclosure behind the shelf to house my Sub woofer as well.

That's about all for now. I am scheduled to start early next year.

Lets see how I go.
