Built this over about 2 weekends (1 to cut & partially assemble and then stain & let dry for about a week, then assemble). Is very easy to build, I got the plans from familyhandyman.

The link is :

I altered the plans and made only 5 ft in length. They are way off on the cost. Maybe $50.00 10-15 years ago, but was still fairly cheap at around 130.00.

Nice looking desk William. Lots of room to work and some great storage as well. Thanks for sharing the link.

Great looking bench- very sturdy. I'm going to bookmark those plans

Is that an SU 100 on the bench- tell us more about that too

Looks good William. One suggestion I have is to get one of those plastic mats that goes under your chair. Not only will it make it easier to move around but it will also protect your carpet from accidental spills.

I picked up a large piece of heavy white plastic from Lowe's. It only cost about $20 for a 4'x10' piece. Your compressor looks like it will be noisey. I'd recomend a tankless one from an ab manufacturer. The desk looks great! I'm about to invest in a large piece of thick glass to cover mine.
