« Part 3: Toy Storage System Part 4 of An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects series Part 5: Desk Update - Weekend 2 »

Hey all,

I was hoping to have pictures to post, but I was simply wiped out afer working in the heat and humidity all weekend. I am worn out, but I made a lot of progress on the desk. The feet are done and look awesome. The posts are done, and the top supports are done, for the most part. The only thing I have left to do is notch the center support to fit into the stretcher. The top panel is glued up and the breadboard ends are made and ready to apply to the top.

This week looks too busy to get anything done in the shop, but I will be taking Friday off. I will at least get a lot done in the morning. Friday I am hoping to finish up the stretcher and wrap thing up on the base of the table. Then next Sunday I am hoping to get the breadboard ends put on the top. Then, hopefully the rest of my mini-vacation from work a week from tomorrow and Tuesday I can get things ready to finish.

Overall I am day or two behind because I did not get to work much on anything this past week because of the day job and family obligations. As I said earlier, this week is not looking great for evening work on the desk.

Oh well, here’s to a very productive weekend this week, and hopefully a productive enough weekend and mini-vacation next week.

As always, thanks for reading,

Remember, slow and steady wins the race. I always find that the little breaks from the projects give me a chance to rethink and recheck- maybe not always a good thing ;^) – anyway, the “day job” provides the pause that builds the excitement for the fun part!

Looking forward to the pictures!!
