« Part 4: Desk Update - Weekend 1 Part 5 of An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects series Part 6: Desk Update - Progress Worth Showing »

Hey all,

Once again, no pictures but a lot of progress. This was a long weekend for me since my parents have been visiting. I made the best of it in the shop too. From Friday until today, I finished up building the base pieces and sanding them. I applied two coats of shellac yesterday to seal up the pine, and today I got the first coat of polyurethane on the base pieces.

With another long weekend coming up, I hope to get a lot more done. I am hoping to get the second and final coat of polyurethane on the base pieces before the end of the week. Then this weekend I hope to get the base glued/put together, and the top put together and at least sanded.

I hope this project does not go longer than three complete weekends. I really need to get the office set up so I can start doing a little work at home when I need to.

Once again, sorry there are no pictures, but they are on the way.
