After a week in the 11’ x 23’ shop, manhandling 32” x 96” sanded 1/2” plywood, I just finished installing my Daughter’s Xmas present in her new art studio.
The ply is edged with 1/2” x 1 1/2” paint grade poplar on all sides in case she wants to change the position of the desk. The legs are just 1” x 3” studs, dadoed and belt sanded. They are screwed from the underside into a sacrifice piece of rough plywood. The corners are supported with legs as well instead of screwing it to the wall. Since she needs lots of flat space for her paintings to dry, I added shelves to the leg supports. The two top sections are joined underneath with kitchen counter bolts.
Her laptop, monitor and art pad will go in the corner. I built the 4×4 table at counter height so she can stand to work as well. https://www.elance.com/s/daynabarley-cohrs/
