I decided to construct a built-in desk for Kathy's computer in the new back room. It will be bolted to the wall with steel angle iron. I wanted it to be beautiful, so I bought a couple of pieces of solid oak and glued them together. And then I needed to add a second layer of wood to the edges, in order to make the desk one and one-half inches thick - that's what all the clamps are about in the first picture. Then I needed to add three coats of marine spar varnish, with careful sanding between each coat. You can't believe how gorgeous this piece is now that the varnishing is done!
