I decided a few weeks ago that I’d try my hand at a custom PC desk for my younger brother. My tools are very limited and/or “low tech” so I have to do a lot of improvising. Mostly that I have a small table saw and cutting pieces over a 30cm in width is an issue.

I had Lowes cut the 4’ x 8’ boards into 2’ x 8’ pieces for me and then transported them home, which make things much easier for me.

So far I’ve only use 1 board for the end section where the PC will sit and where a few drawers will go. As well as the desk top.

Almost 2am, times flies. Got some more done. Left “leg” and middle and rear brace. Tomorrow should be fun building the drawer. Not sure how to do it yet so it’ll be Google research time in the morning.

Coming right along. Drawers aren’t so hard to do. Your brother is a lucky guy

Thanks Gary! He’s excited about it.

Table top cut to size. Still working on the drawer… made a whole drawer, only to realize I incorrectly measured the width of the opening. So I had a 2cm gap on both sides. :p So went back, kept a closer eye on measurements and what I was cutting and made it right the second time.

Now to set up drawer slides, router table top and sides and stain.

Horrible first blog attempt. Finished the desk and didn’t post any pictures… Well here they are. I learned a lot making this. My next desk will be even better. Turned out my brother only wanted the one drawer and preferred the shelves instead.
