Nice work, Ryan! 

I guess your walls were parallel as you didn't show any scribing for the top installation!

I had to redo much of that drywall... I made sure it was pretty damned straight as I sanded... :)

The largest gap I had after installing the top was maybe an 1/8th inch. I just used caulk.

Hey Ryan, I have really enjoyed following along with this build, but especially the YouTube videos on the BF/MFT and the desk. I'm a professional commercial editor (advertising) so I know how time consuming it is to create content. Just wanted to let you know I like your style and found them entertaining and informative. Cheers!

Hey Ryan,

I think I said this before to you on YouTube but I just wanted to say again how awesome your build is! I also love porsche's and woodworking so the channel is perfect for me.

I was wondering if you could help me out with 2 dimensions of your table.

Could you give me the height of the "pillar" extrusions on the outside of your table. Ascetically the height of your table looks great so I wanted to recreate the same thing.

And if you could, the height of the casters without the "plate" that you used?

Thank you SO much!

Those casters are 3 1/8" tall without the plate... The pillars, if I understand you right, are 25 3/4" tall...

As for plans, I've tried working with 80/20 to get some done with part numbers, etc... but they have ignored me. I'm going to approach a competitor and see if they would be interested in getting involved.

@AtomicRyan Thanks so much for the reply. I think I have this pretty much locked down on how to build it now.

If i'm correct, the total height would be 33.5" on yours then?

3/4" MDF - 3/4"
80mm Top Support - 3 1/8"
"Outside Pillars" - 25 3/4"
Plate - 3/4"
Castors - 3 1/8"

If anyone was interested I could write down the cuts needed for this build once Ryan replies with the height total. If in Canada (Toronto Area) I have also sourced a supplier for 80/20 new. The total for my 80/20 new is $939.26 CAD plus tax. This doesn't include any fasteners or the drill jig.

I just measured mine... and it's up on the feet at 35 9/16" - same height as a stock MFT... There's some adjustability there obviously.

@AtomicRyan

Hmm. I wonder if the "outside pillar" dimension was actually the inside pillar (between the systainers which is 40mm less). The outside pillars aren't 27.25" high are they? I am not sure how I am almost 2" off.  [eek]

Awesome thanks! I'll definitely be keeping this build for life. I'm sure we all appreciate the hard work that you did putting this together originally.  [big grin]

I made a few changes to this before I built, but the basics are there and the measurements are right.
