This hardly warrants a project announcement but I recently obtained a new/used iMac from a guy online at a great price. I had recently made a murphy bed (on the left) and decided that the small space between the bed and the wall was perfect to sort of put it out of the way. I also had this picture that was just the right size to hide the circuit barker panel on the wall but it had a thin black metal frame that wasn’t quite big enough to completely hide it. So, the other day I glued up a maple top and while it was drying I put together the frame to actually go over the top of the existing one. After the desk top was done I pocket screwed a skirt board on the front of it, eased the edges and sanded it. I put a couple of coats of poly on it after I mounted it to the wall.
Before the whole house renovations began we got rid of the previous desk because it had become a hoarders paradise on the top and in the drawers. It’s like food. I can’t have doughnuts in the house because I’ll just eat them all. I can’t have a desk because I’ll just fill it up. Strange but true. I’ll bet some of you know exactly what I mean!

On another note, this 27” iMac is so nice, so fast. And even though I’m a good typist I love the built in dictation feature. I never typed a word of this post. I just talked to it. It even seems to pick up the best word to use in context. Like to, too, and two. (I had to type those three words as it didn’t know what to use because they weren’t used in a sentence.) Anyway, so cool.

Thanks for looking.

Good use of space. iMac commercial is good too but I am sticking with my iPad. Love how fast Apple goes online.

We’ve got an iPad in the house too. The wife’s. It’s fast and good. I do web pages and such though. It doesn’t do some of the things I like to do. BTW.. if you’ve got an iPad 3 or greater i think dictation works for you too.
