I finished the drafting desk and chair about 3 weeks ago. Oak desk, chair is cherry with deep scoop poplar seat. For the work surface of the desk I used 3/4 inch plywood with piano henge and the screen out of an old rear projection 51 inch TV, which is a really hard surface. So far this combo has produced one drawing of a new project and several really nice afternoon naps. Also if you look really close on one of the shelves, yes, that is a pack of Oreos within arms reach. (My only vice). Thanks for looking.
