First off my next project is going to be about the size of a coaster. I found out real soon into the build of this project that I didn’t have near the room I wished I had in my little two car garage. Regardless I still had fun with this one. I wish now that I had spent more time in Sketchup showing all the finish trim work. One thing I really like is how I was able to incorporate an antique window into the desk with a picture of our kids. The carcass is made completely of 3/4” ply. The top is the same and cut as one piece to fit over the two smaller book cases. I used dark walnut stain and antique white for the finish. The wife is happy and that’s always a good thing.
