So I will not finishing this project as I now have a conflict of interest as Sim Racing has taken over my life and I will be doing a rig build and don't have space for both projects. If anyone is interested in this project then hit me up and make me an offer as I need to replace this desk with regular desk and PC case.

that is sad to hear

can you give us a run down on material cost so that we can a ballpark figure in our heads?

I don't want to come offer you R5 for a project that cost you R10 :p

Well for the most part;
Aluminium - R1k ish
Steel - R150 ish
Powdercoating - R600
Glass - R100 - 300 Can't remember exactly
Wood Top - R1100 Got it on a special
Labour - R250000 I have high self value lol

Kidding aside, the desk needs a new top as the pine is simply put not strong enough to handle daily abuse so it'll have to be made from Thickened MDF but preferably from strong wood like Saligna as the pine top has bent quite a bit. The pine can probably be braced and strengthened by someone with sufficient woodworking skills.

Realistically this desk has value of R3500 but value will vary heavily as this is extremely niche.

Desk will have to be collected from Krugersdorp, shipping will probably be a bad idea.
