Hello fellow lumberjocks!

I’m new here and I’m looking forward to learning more from all of you and continuing to hone my woodworking skills.

Here’s a hickory standing desk / drafting table that I finished a couple days ago:

Here’s a short video:

Welcome to LumberJocks tommytompkins.
That is a great looking desk. What did you use for the actuators? (where did you find them)

Nice job, some very cool details you incorporated into it. That hickory looks great there and the shop pup surely approves. Now clean that pigsty up some, would ya?

Thank you for the warm welcome! I’m using actuators from windynation.com.

This is a very nice drawing and drafting table. It’s a real beauty and a great addition to your shop.

Thanks Charles! This will be used as a computer desk more than a drafting table, but the tilting features are very nice for better ergonomic keyboard and mouse placement with the wrists. There’s also a monitor stand component that goes with this, but that’s kind of a separate project in itself.

Hello, I’m curious if you notice any sawdust or even loud scratching noises coming from the wood rubbing together? I’m planning on building something similar and assumed I’d use something like rollers or drawer slides to eliminate this but now that I see yours I’m thinking it could be unnecessary.

Hi James,

No, there’s never any scratching noises from the wood rubbing. I use Howard’s Feed and Wax for lubrication and it works very well. I only apply it every 6 months or so. Even after all these years of using it, there’s zero visible wear on the wood finish.
