    Hmm, yeah just to make the feet bigger, I see what you're saying. I'll keep it in mind, but as I use it more it is becoming a lower priority. The sway really isn't that bad, especially once you get used to using it in a way to minimize the movement (which isn't a big change). Eventually I do...

    It's carpet and could very well be contributing. That crossed my mind but I don't want to stub my toe on a 3/4" thick board under the feet. I suppose I could doctor it up with rounded corners but I think I'd rather try my caster / wall plate idea first.

    A Picture I Took 2017

    That looks like a painting. Beautiful shot.

    Sure, hope it helps. I have always had a bad back, and ever since I started working from home a few years ago, work and play in the same room with bad posture all the time has really worsened it a lot. Having the ability to go from sitting to standing whenever I feel like it multiple times a...

    That sounds awesome - cedar is a beautiful wood. I figured I'd share some of my research on standing desk legs, in case you or anyone else could benefit from it. I found basically 3 sources to base my decision on. The Wirecutter's roundup, Reviews.com's roundup, and Beyond the Office Door's...

    Thanks! Well... it wobbles. Sitting height is rock solid. Standing, not so much. If you rock it, it wobbles a lot, but even if you're just nodding your head to some music with your hands on the desk top, it still moves a little bit. It's never really scary like it's going to fall over or...

    Just saw this thread. Love me a good custom desk :). Looking good, OP, keep up the good work.

    ^so I figure I can screw things into the bottom without worrying about it; nobody will ever see that. If I had a joint on the end grain somewhere or needed to fasten something to the top, I would probably look into those. Desk as it is now: Stupid rubber feet on the adjustable "desk" stained...

    Looks neat. Are you suggesting for the shelf legs? Edit: looking at it more, maybe you mean between the left, center, and right sections of the desk? If that's the case, I actually want them separate because the center section is going to be height adjustable shortly.

    Just went down to check out the 3rd coat. Zomg you guys, I nailed this one. The whole project. I don't want to put stuff on it!

    Got all 3 coats on the top done today. 2nd coat, looked awesome except for a couple drips I had to sand down. If it wasn't for those, I probably would have left it. There's some awesome figure in these boards. The knots made some curls in the wood and it's just gorgeous. I originally stayed...

    nap time update: bye bye sharp edges hello curves. This edge has my fixed router gouge from yesterday - can you find it? :) a little free-hand sanding to blend the routed corners and get rid of some burn marks (stupid cord got hung up on something and stopped my movement, burned a bit...

    Lol, I had that same thought earlier. I almost switched offices with my wife, but decided against it. It'll suck to fill in, but doable if I really need to... Kind of.

    So much progress today! Got it all sanded down. I think I overestimated my time yesterday, I think it was only an hour and a half. I think it was about another hour and a half today, so call it 3 hours front and back with 80 grit on the belt sander. I'm really happy with the decision to cut...
