[Lowe's] Q Solutions Acacia Straight Cut Solid Surface Kitchen Countertop - 74" x 40" x 1"

This seems looks like a good deal and wider at 40" vs. 25" like many tables. Reg price is $229.

In stock at many stores. $82.98 at South Etobicoke, 24 in stock.

Wondering if too wide as a computer desk. Now to find a base or build one.

Definitely a bit wide for a desk, but manageable..

Common base for DIY desks is a pair of Alex drawers from ikea.

This would make a nice computer desk.

Just buy some legs!

Those Alex drawers look good - low in stock at a few stores.

There would be 17" of overhang at the back, if you wanted the drawers to be flush with the front. Maybe 2 legs in the back would help support and also reduce any sag if they were offset towards the middle.

Yeah with a 72" x 40" x 1" top, you'd probably need a cross support anyways toward the back.

They couldn’t find them at Etobicoke South.

The herringbone ones are poorly made.

I wouldn’t want to rip these down, more like a door instead a piece of dimensioned lumber.

I have one that I've been using as a desk for the last 5 months. Wouldn't recommend. The wood is very soft.

I think maybe if you polyurethane it then it might work better, but i've only treated it with oil and wax, this thing dents and chips easily.

Installed these for kitchen counter top this summer.
They do dent easily, but look very nice. End grain really looks sharp.
Easy to cut if you want to do any side projects with this product.

Polyurethane is just to seal the wood and stain from liquids penetrating into the wood like water, oil, etc. Polyurethane does add a scratch resistant barrier but it does not help with dents and chips as these are based solely on the wood only. This is a laminated top so makes sense it will dent and chip easily.

Think of it like clear coat on your car, protects the paint but as for dents and chips the clear coat wont help with that.

Anyone been able to find this for $80 or any similar thick wood tops? I'm looking to build a computer desk and I have a standing frame but I was looking for something nice and solid to put on the top. I was hoping to build something using live wood but it's just way too expensive.
