Anyway I posted the pics before. They're on page 83 of the "show us your rig" thread. So if you'ld care to look there. That was before I put a strip down the side edge.

That's quite a table Ted, you could dance on that

Thanks John, I have!

It's 89.99 which is not bad at all

Check out my desk I made out of a Interior door with a few coats of sealer that cost $3 and some 4x4 wood for legs, vinyl guttering for cable management. Total cost ~$50

That's great Shook. I just saw this on the other thread and thought it would be good on this one as well.
I like the way you've tidied your cable's away. How are your legs fixed to the door?

Cheers, John

Is that the Door To Opportunity above the desk?

lol oh how i wish the breaker box wasn't right there

I attached the legs using some metal L brackets from home depot. Came in a four pack and I used 4 for each leg, one on each side.

Just hang a big painting or poster over it.
