I used this Japanese cedar slab to make a very simple computer desk for the family. Nothing fancy but turned out pretty good! I still need some cedar door or drawer fronts to finish off the base. I trimmed it from 7 to 6 feet in length and will use the off cuts for a some matching floating shelves in the near future. 4×4 cedar post for the leg.

To be honest, Japanese cedar is way too soft for a desk.. but the slab was only $70 and hopefully the Poly will give it enough protection.

Cheers everyone!!!

Looks terrific. I’m sure it’ll be around for many years.

That is one stunning desk. The color is so nice and warm. Is it stained?

I like the way you handled the support on the left.

I always enjoy your photography.

Thanks everyone…

James – just clear poly. Im glad the color came though, it really warms up that corner of the room.

Have your say...
