Built this desktop in 2012 from some sweet Walnut slabs I found on a vegetable farm where the family also serve as sawyers. Had the pieces joined and planed at a local mill works and brought out the remarkable wood color with no stain and Waterlox as the finish. It is mounted to the wall with two 1,000-lb. rated brackets for a clear opening under the full 8-ft length.

From what I can see, looks good. A few more pictures from different angles would give everyone a better look at it… Good job !!! Mel

I would like to see the brackets. I like the floating look.

good looking desk – appears to be about 3” thick so 250lbs ?

It’s closer to 2.5” Dick and not quite that heavy as I muscled it into place myself. Came out to 30” deep by 8’ long, so quite a workspace – I’m running two computer and four displays on it at the moment during the work-at-home situation.

Being 6’8” tall and always smashing my knees under tables, I too would like to see the brackets.

regardless of weight, darn good looking desk and like ohwoodeye said, a peek at the brackets would be nice.

Here’s the bracket I used – just a thick stamped steel piece that was lagged into the wall studs. The whole desk is absolutely rigid with no play. Got ‘em on eBay I think.
