WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO … for a while now, i’ve been wanting to set up a graphic design studio in my house. about 15 months ago, following the birth of our son, i got that opportunity and i’ve been dedicating lots of time getting it all situated.
the one item that i’ve been missing is a good desk, and i have to say, it’s brought my studio to a grinding halt. that was until last week, when i happened upon two 4’x4’ sections of bowling alley lane (off of Freecycle, nonetheless). it’s really graphic and really cool—and i want to make a desk out of it!
(here’s a snap of the alley section in all its glory)
ok, so i have no idea where to start, and frankly, it’s gotten me very nervous. i don’t know the first thing about woodworking, nor do i have the tools. i’ve read some other blogs (one from a fellow in this online community) and have a vague idea of how to get going. it’s probably the anxiety of starting that is keeping me from starting … but i’m cautious because i feel like i’m in a bit over my head.
i have a funny feeling that this project is gonna take me a long time, so i am thinking of building an interim desk. i’ll post photos of that too.
over the next several installments, i plan on posting photos, drawings and detailed content of what worked and what didn’t. so, any feedback or direction would be greatly appreciated.
