This is a desk that I made for my son Gabriel. It is made of primarily 2x lumber from the big box store, some 1/2” plywood scraps and the 1/4” tempered glass was salvaged from a school demolition site. There is a space between the drawer and the top that serves multiple purposes. He can store his laptop and or books when not in use or he can open the text books below the glass for reference while working on worksheets on top. The drawer and drawer box are made of 1/2” ply and the drawer is a piston fit which slides smoothly in and out of the box. All parts of the frame are joined with dominoes. The box is constructed using miter joints all around so that I didn’t have to use veneer tape. The drawer is constructed with lock rabbets and an applied front. This design is reminiscent of the dresser that I built a few years ago. It is finished with Varathane Olde Maple stain and several coats of satin poly. Thanks for looking!
