Shame to paint it.

This is an arched reception desk with filing drawers that I finally wrapped up. Would've looked great with a nice finish.

Hi Bullhart,

I agree that is is a shame that people want to paint timber. A good finish will always give character and ambience to a piece.

What kind of wood/material is it made of?

I can't see any grain...

If it's MDF, shouldn't it be painted? (if it is, that is)

Looks like you did a very nice / good job!! Really COOL!

I blame the no visible grain in the phone camera. The desk and draws are mostly birch ply. The fluted casing is poplar, the only mdf is the baseboard. I used these materials because I knew from the get go that it was going to get slathered in paint.

Thanks foryour kind words
