Building a workspace

Home

Since the construction of my room about a year ago (see photos) i having been meaning to build myself a desk. Since the corner where the desk will go is rounded it seemed like custom building it was a better option then getting something store bought, plus i like building things and would get a chance to revive what little carpentry skills i might have. Here are some photos of the process and finished workspace. i think it turned out rather nice.
Now what to do with it? :D
Thanks to Peter for lending me the tools.

hot springs
I used a sheet of 3/4 inch [[wikipedia:birch]] plywood. Here the shape has already been cut with a jigsaw.

Here is a view of the slider that will support the fold up extension.

hopeIn addition to the two front legs the desk will be anchored to the wall for extra support.

dadThe walls have been masked in perparation for coating the wood with a [[wikipedia:polyurethane]] finish (4 coats)

steamHaving finished the main desk, i quickly realised that i would need a little storage space since the desk doesn’t have any drawers. i decided to build a shelving unit that would sit above the desk… this would prove to be trickier and more time consuming then the desk.

Ironing on the wood stripping.

sci-fiGetting the same [[wikipedia:polyurethane]] finish as the desktop.

The Spirit of Fès (NYC)

This past weekend I photographed preformances from “The Spirit of [[Wikipedia:Fès]] ” U.S. National Tour 2006 as they past through NYC, preforming at [[Wikipedia:Carnegie Hall]] and The Dance New Amsterdam theater. Most of the photos focus on the group Daqqa Roudania of Taroundant, [[wikipedia:Morocco]] preforming music and ceremony in the [[Wikipedia:Sufi music]] tradition.
