Hi there. Ever see something IKEA-like that you’d like to build? Well, I found this corner desk that would be perfect for my wife now that she’s working on upgrading her education. They were kind enough to provide schematics and a few dimensions. Using those, I was able to import the drawings into Sketch Up, trace them, and then scale them according to some of the dimensions provided online.
It took me several weeks to lay everything out in sketchup, but I’ve got 4 little kids, and sometimes it’s hard just to find time to take a shower. I’ve been laying it out on 3/4 Birch, and the first piece I cut came out nicer than I had expected. The local ‘wholesale lumber’ yard has cabinet grade Birch for $28 a sheet, where Lowe’s wants $39. It’ll take two sheets, plus mistakes. I’ve got about a third of it cut out. After that, it’s time for me to invest in an HVLP of some fashion, or I’ll be there for ever. Many thanks to all of you who have posted reviews on here.
