Brent's description

Was redecorating my room, which also needed a new desk. I made the desktop myself from okoumé wood. This panel is 2m by 80.0 cm and I bought it online, then mounted the top on an IKEA base.

How I made this project

First I looked at Looking for a sturdy base that was also good in price and easy to mount a plate on yourself. After measuring my room again, it turned out that the plate was 10.0 cm too long (my fault). So I shortened it a bit. Apparently I also forgot to round off the top and bottom, no problem because I have a sander myself and found the rounding quite rough, I also found the other surfaces quite rough. I was able to sand this away. Then I gave the shelf a nice layer of varnish and placed it on the IKEA mount after drying. And my new setup was ready
