This is a desk that I just made for a friend who does a lot of graphics design. Before this he worked on one of those cheap plastic card tables. Needless to say he was struggling for room. It was a bit of a challenge since he wanted it to be completely open above and below the desk. That meant that there could be no skirt. The second challenge was that the legs had to be removable since it had to make a tight turn through a hallway into his office area. I made a skirt on the two outer sides and a decorative corner bracket on the front and back. These were screwed and glued down and seemed very rigid. I ordered a set of leg brackets from Rockler and was very pleased. The second picture (fuzzy) shows that. I wanted to make it for him with as low materials cost as I could so I made it out of Ash and threw in a few walnut scraps. I was able to keep materials around $135 including wood, finish, hardware, transportation and several trips to the planing mill. Thanks everyone!
