I wanted to briefly document a one day build I did that focused on wood finishing

There isn't much to say about this one. I was given a motorized standing desk from my office when they closed during the lockdown. The tabletop was cheap Ikea particleboard and it wouldn't fit in my tiny car anyway. I threw it out and made my own table top surface with a couple planks of poplar wood. My TV stand's finish was not nearly as professional as it could have been. For this, I really wanted to focus all my energy on how the finish came out. I triple checked my cuts, tightened down on any glue bonds, and sanded until my arms turned to jelly. I was incredibly happy with the end result.
