This is a computer desk I made out of pine from Home Depot in 2007. With my last project being almost 2 years before, I got married and bought a house, I was anxious to do something other than house renovation. At this point I had a cheap table saw and had just gotten a router and router table. Hence the overkill with every edge being routed. I was looking for a desk to fit this corner and nothing fit. The wife said make one and my eyes lit up. Why didn’t I think of that. Anyway this is what I came up with. There was supposed to be a divider between the computer and the chair but it was just too tight. You can see it in one of the pictures. That’s why the drawer has both rails on one side and the computer base is not attached to the desk. This was the my first time glueing panels and using a router. Did not know anthing about wood movement so the top is not attahced correctly but luckly it has not caused a problem so far.

Finish is minwax red oak with minwax fast dry polyurathane.

haha, I’ve done that double glides on one side before too! It was for a roll out spice rack in the kitchen cabinet.
