My first real project, a computer desk. Had no plans, made from construction grade lumber and plywood. I had a ball making this, we use it every day.

Jeff this looks really good! I love seeing Construction Grade material come together to make something so nice! Its inspiration to poor college kid woodworkers like me, that can’t afford “nice” wood! :)

PS – Welcome to Lumberjocks! Great 1st project!

You did a great job on this one, the best part is it gets used regularly. Well Done

Thanks for all the encouraging comments, yes that floor mat works well, the plastic ones never seem to last.
