    Took a couple of weekends to do, all that I used was a screwdriver, a circular saw, a sander and some sash clamps. Took the door apart to get rid of the gaps between the planks, then put it back together, sanded it down, cut it to the angle of the wall (about 75deg), then applied varnish. Attached the legs and put a cable tray hanging under the back. Total cost around £80.
    Good, apart from it looks like half a door laying on top of some legs.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable´╗┐.

    Holy moly! I like!

    No idea where I'd put any of it but bookmarked for future reference nonetheless
