This is my first furniture project.
Built from a single sheet of birch plywood and a douglas fir 2×10 from the home center.
This was also my first foray into wood joinery and I chose an odd corner joint for the base that i found photos of online. The joint is essentially an edge-lap joint into two intersecting open through tenons.
Additionally, I cut my own edge banding from the same 2×10.
I chose to make the rear skirt double the height of the front and sides. I will circle back and add on some cable management.
The corner joinery was cut on my bandsaw and I cut the half-lap joints for the stretchers by hand.
The mother in law chose a white enamel for the base and a “walnut” minwax stain for the top, which matches their decor rather nicely.
Next I’ll build them a cart for the printer(s) so they don’t have to use a kitchen chair.
