This is the printer table I made to go along with “Daughters Desk” and “Shelves for Desk” posted earlier today. The carcase is made with Oak plywood, 3/4”, the face frame and drawer front are red oak, and the top is 3 pieces of 1×8 that I put together with tongue and groove so it wouldn’t buckle, and then routed the edge as one piece with a roman ogee bit. I used pocket screws on the carcase and face frame, and rabbeted the corners of the drawers, and dadoed the sides to slide in the bottom. I think I am now done with that room!

Yeah, I really love the grain on the top and drawer front of this piece. I love the oak, but unfortunately. that and poplar are about my only choices at the local Lowes. If there is a place in my area to get other wood or rough cut lumber, I haven’t found it yet.

Very nice stand. If wood at the big box stores are priced anything like up here in Canada you really gotta find another source. The bed I made for my daughter was made from Red Oak purchased from a saw mill. I paid about $2.45 bdf and I got everyting from 8/4 to 4/4 and 12” to 6” wide. Home Depot’s price was almot $10bdf and would have cost me almost close to $1500 plus everything was 3/4” so I would have had a bunch of glue ups. With the money I saved I bought my first planner and jointer. It was a no brainer. Even if you have to travel a long distance to get the wood it is worth it. The saw mill I go too is almost an hour from my house.
