Desk made exactly to my dear daughter’s specs…(oak)...YES the first pic shows before I set the desk to the wall. Now the box IS CENTERED between the desk uprights. :-)

It’s nice when the designer get to help make the project. I’ll bet she got a real sense of accomplishment.

That is cool.
Did she come up with the design all on her own, or did she get the basic idea from a magazine?
Is it attached to the wall or is it really just leaning against it.

Very nice, and you got to spend some quality time with your daughter in the process.

Looks great. Will it stay as neat as it is in the picture?

She saw small leaning shelves at a Crate/Barrel store and asked if I could make a larger one. In the store, the top was 24 inches wide. She wanted a MUCH bigger work surface. This desk top is 48 inches wide!!! I have a cleat attached to the wall. The desk top sits on that and is held by screws from the bottom up. Also the desk sides are screwed into the uprights. I wanted to add shelves above the desk but she wanted the box.
