This is my very first woodworking project ever. I decided to build a desk because I could not find one at goodwill. I started out just drawing what I would like a desk to look like and then turned it into a Sketchup model.
From there I had to build it. I went to homedepot and bought 2 4×8 boards, with the cuts already planed out, I had them cut it for me.
Once I got the wood home, I started assembling my first project. From then I was hooked on woodworking.
I had completed the desk but the cuby hold I left for two plastic shelf drawers to fit into just did not look good enough to me, so I decided to build some drawers of my own. I planed them out on Sketchup and then went to using the scrap wood from the desk to build 4 beautiful drawers.
I then stained the desk and then decided it needed one more drawer.
I then decided I would add some trim across the top shelf of the desk.
