    Hey folks,

    Keeping my idle hands busy I thought I'd put this DIY project together for anyone needing a new PC desk or sculpting/modeling workbench:

    The stuff you'll need:



    (2) 48" L x 24" W melamine board
    (2) 29" L x 24" W melamine board (cut 2 more 48" to this length)
    (4) corner brackets
    5/8" screws (for the brackets)
    2" screws (for reinforcing and placing the top -not shown oops)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    placing the brackets on each of the 4 corners of one 48" x 24" piece (this is the back piece) use the 5/8" screws

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Attach the (29" H x 24" W) sides to the brackets making sure the top of the back brace is level with the top of the sides. the gap at the bottom will assist in running a power strip under the desk. you can reinforce the sides by adding one or two 2" screws between the brackets.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Placing the top 48" x 24" piece just use 4 or 5, 2" screws

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now your desk can be filled with stuff! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I had bought a nice new chair to go with my new desk but someone stole it...


    Here's that new sculpt in progress with a few turn around shots:

    Nice pics, as always, Swords. If only I needed another desk... I don't suppose you know how to whip up one of those comfy tempurpedic matresses.
    Is that the Fresh Prince on your TV?

    Actually it's the Queens of Comedy show that was on Comedy Central earlier tonight... maybe it was Chris Rock.

    Going from grooving on classic english grind/crust core (Axegrinder and Prophecy of Doom) to diva comedy! U gotta love life! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Be careful, I see a battle forming on your workbench between your Snakeman and Eddie. Could be messy.

    Wow you must be psychic!

    See that British Spitfire fighter plane back there? It's an in progress for a modeling mag article, first in a series of heavy metal oriented vehicle customs... "Aces High"! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
