My small desk just didn’t give me enough space to draw, edit videos, or play video games comfortably. So I decided it’s time for a new one! I considered buying a computer desk, but couldn’t find quite what I wanted, so I decided to make one. One that would have room for all my hobbies and be modular!

Check out my video for a quick overview of the build process, and let me know what you think!

UPDATE: I’ve received a few comments that there are safer ways to cut the first taper than free-hand on the table saw. Please use caution… or the circular saw.
