I was asked to build a slim computer desk for a room with limited space and a grey colour scheme. I though I'd try Sketchup so as I could demo it and built it from the Sketchup plans. It turned out OK.
The MDF was finished wit Xylene paint which has a lovely finish but was a complete PITA to do.
In the end I put fewer shelves in than on the design. They were a little too close together to be useful.
