This is a desk I made for my ten year old son. Both of his older brothers already had their own desks. I made the drawer slides myself out of a sliding dovetail. My wish is that he gets a lot of years of good use out of it.

That’s a great desk Eric. Should get lots of years of use.

These are the kinds of things kids remember years later. “My Dad built this for me.”

Nice work.

That’s a nice desk and a great place to study.
