    im looking at getting a fitted home office desk and wondered if someone could tell me what type of wood has been used in the picture attached.

    Any other advice would be welcomed for a diy novice.

    Many thanks

    Thanks for quick response big-all. Unfortunately I'm needing a length of 262cm... They don't seem to do it that size.

    Perhaps a local timber merchant might be able to sort me out with something like this?

    Or if I got two pieces from wickes as in above link, any tips on how to hide where they would meet?

    Many thanks
    Kel

    I can see a few knots? So I think it might be pine rather than mdf/chipboard beech effect furniture board - it's probably had a coat of natural varnish or likewise hence the colour.

    Looks like solid beech, expensive job by the look of it.
