Here’s my new computer desk that I desperately needed to make because I was tired of my old walmart-quality desk that was reeeally small. The top is now over 5ft x 2ft giving me plenty of room to work. It’s only 3/4” thick but I banded it with solid wood to stiffen it and give the illusion that it’s thicker than it really is. I loosely modeled it after a Pottery Barn desk that I liked.
It’s made mostly from red oak plywood and colored with an espresso water-based stain and java gel stain. I custom sized the computer tower so that it allows plenty of air circulation for the fans. I also put all the surge protectors and wires hidden behind the lower cabinet door which are on inset hinges. All the drawers are on full extension slides.
