A little over a year and I can finally say that my sons' desks are done. I worked wood, assembled wood, sanded wood, and finished wood.
My younger son, Mitchell, was the most excited so I let him pick which desk to put in his room. The desks are so similar, it wasn't much of a reward but still...
For both the boys' rooms, we took this as an opportunity to do some spring cleaning. This allowed us to free up room so that the desks can fit with plenty of space. On each desk, I installed a power strip so to hide (mostly) any cables for the computers.
Mitchell elected to move his main computer into his room and has been enjoying it a lot for the last 24 hours. Xander has taken a more cautious approach and has his laptop in his room on the desk rather than his main computer. I guess he likes hanging out with his Mom and Dad more which is interesting.
You can see that for Xander, he'll have the opportunity to play with computer recording his guitar playing as his skills improve if he is interested.
Today I took a day off of chores and everything in celebration of being finished. Tomorrow I need to get to work putting stuff away in storage so that Kathy can park her car in the garage again.
Next project options include a re-imagined wall hanging tool chest (I've come up with ideas based on how I worked on this project) or a jewelry chest for Kathy. It'll be a few weeks before I get to any project though as school is starting for the boys soon and I have some volunteering that needs to happen.
