Modular Computer Desk

Got the design from Pottery Barn. Assembled using Kreg pocket holes. The entire desk is modular for easy moving.

Finally got the truck parked at home... Happy to see you folks still talking about the desk.

Planning to use 3/4 Red Oak(ply) with some banding for the top and cabinet sides. not sure what the finish will be; stain and sealer most likely.

Will doors or drawers allow more storage? I think doors with an adjustable shelf...

CB. I used 3/4" MDF for all parts except for the desk top. MDF holds up very well w/ Kreg jig assembly.

If you are sending out dimensions I'll take one if you don't mind sending me one.

Did you use plywood or MDF or both? I want to build a corner desk like the Bedford, will probably have to use plywood instead of a door for the top.

I started w/ a primer coat. I painted the corners w/ a brush. The rest I used Whizz brand rollers and 3/8" nap rollers. Sanded lightly between coats. That Alkyd Enamel lays down very nicely. Wish I had a sprayer though. Would've cut my time drastically.

Thanks. It sure did lay down nicely for you. What roller cover did you use? 3/16"? Foam? Did you sand between coats? Did you use penetrol in the paint?

John, I used a Porter Paints brand Porter Guard Fast Dry Alkyd Enamel in Satin finish. It's not fast dry, though. I waited 1-2 days between coats and then waited one week for final assembly/setup in the room. Since its an oil-based enamel it is more durable than latex, but it took about twenty days after setup in the room to fully cure. Rolled it on. High odor too so use ventilation.

Give me a bit to work up measurements, guys. I did it on scrap paper and might have thrown it away. I pulled the design off of Pottery Barn website Modular Desk w/ a few changes.

Did you spray? What kind of paint did you use? Beautiful finish.
