Finally done and delivered! The though just hit me as I was delivering these two desks, and that is I wish everyone of my clients would order two pieces of the exact same furniture from my. The first desk I built took a heck of a lot longer than the second one. I built the second desk in half the time!. But anyhow these are made from red oak hardwood and plywood. Most of the desk build is on video so I won’t bore you with all of the details.

-- I cut it twice and the damn thing is still too short!@#$%

fine piece of furniture
I understand what your saying, but I would rather have an order for 10 different pieces

If they ordered 5 or 6 of each piece, wouldn’t you build them in parallel (as opposed to in sequence)?

Depends I might make one and see where I mess up and cuss because I measured once cut three times. But I would see how one went then make the remaining pieces.
