Made this out of teak and prefinished plywood.
After seeing so many here I thought I would share

It has to feel really good that your design and construction are so professional and timeless. I hope to achieve much the same thing when I (finally) build mine.

Thanks for sharing!

. That's the beauty of using Teak, Seth.
12 min, 12 weeks, or 12 years old, it's always timeless... [wink]

That's very nice and a great story...

I'm sitting at a teak desk I bought when a Danish furniture company in Houston went out of business. It was a steal and weighs a ton! It has been from (I guess Denmark) to Houston to Amsterdam to Austin and is solid as a rock. The drawer slides are really slick also.

I love teak.
