I’ve always wanted to build furniture for our home, but I’ve never really “had the time”. My wife and I used mostly IKEA type furniture and “temporary” solutions that became more permanent as time went on.
Well, earlier this year my house was flooded and we basically lost everything. Luckily, the workshop was unharmed, so I took the opportunity to find the time and finally build the custom furniture I wanted for our house. This desk is the first of many pieces to come.
It’s made of walnut and has coats of danish oil and wipe on poly for the finish. The legs are angle iron which I tapered using a milling machine. It was a fun build – it’s not perfect by any means, but I learned a lot, and I made it.
