So my grandson is going for the first time in school and of-course grandpa is set to the task to build his first office desk.
As always first I did my design and build it using 3 types of wood. Pine for the legs, spruce on the top back and shelve support, and melamine for the shelve top and the two drawers.
Varnished with matte poly.
Dimensions are: 100Wx60Dx72H cm (at desk top) or 88H cm at shelve top

Hope you like it and all comments are always welcome
thank you for watching

Thank you my friend. It’s quite sturdy but grandpa will always be happy or looking for an excuse to build him another when he grows up :) hahahaha

Nice work Steli. I like the look. I like the melamine giving it a more modern look.

Great design -

I am sure it will be used with pride.

Outstanding and elegant design! You will, sure, take a large part of his present and future education…at least when doing homework is about.

Nice build Stelios, looks like it has all the correct joinery, and with stout lumber, even if your Grandson is a brawler, that desk will survive.

Thanks for posting, and congratulations on your 3.
