I remember my attempt to make a decent desk, I got the drawers OK but everything was so uneven and out of place I just scrapped it.

Hehe, I tried to make the handles look "Creeper" ish. Not sure if that will come across.

I would enjoy gaming on that.... nice work!

I got one of those stupid pull out tables for my keyboard and I hate it.

very nice build quality, altho i am going to give some constructive feedback

the center looks sort of trapped and almost claustrophobic; arms would be at the edges of the quarter circle and may be uncomfortable when ontop of the desk, for me anyway.

He's only 12 and skinny there's plenty of room for him.

It's 1600mm by 1600mm, bigger than it looks.

Looks good and saved a lot of money. When I set up an eyefinity build i needed a desk like this for 3 monitors to go on. Way to expensive! I ended getting wall mounts.

Finished

Don't think I'll bother with decals. I think it looks fine as it is.

Unless he wants some of course.

Very nice and good to see parent do something like this for their children. I think he will be really happy to see it.

That monitor....is it not too big? It may hurt his eyes later I think since he wouldn't sit far enough away from the monitor.

That's a huge screen for desktop use. His eyes will strain and go bad pretty soon xD

It does look very nice.

I could probably make something like that. But it probably wouldn't be as good. :P

Looks great. I'd like to make my own desk, I'd like to build one which integrates a USB HUB, audio connections, and have a noise dampened apartment to hold a tower PC with ventilation.

To be honest I think he should be truly proud to have a father like you. I don't know you in person but god bless you, you are truly an amazing dad.
