    Hi,


    I'm building a simple tube / pipe clamp desk, like this:
    [​IMG]

    Can someone more experienced suggest some ideas for the table top?

    I've seen everything from using 4-6 individual wood boards, solid wood doors, wood panels etc.
    Ideally I'd want one smooth surface with no raised bits or kinks.
    Approximate size = 150cm x 70cm

    Any ideas welcome.
    If you are allowed to post any links to suppliers even better.

    Thanks

    I used a bamboo panel for my desk, with a hard wax oil coating.
    I'm very pleased with it, though it's much less rustic than the effect in your photo.

    OSB board. Two layers of 18mm glued together will make a good solid table top.

    School lab hardwood bench tops if you can find them

    Or slate?
