This was another quick and dirty project. Just made the top and attached to IKEA legs. Attached the edging using the domino.

Really this post is just the easiest way to highlight an update to my workshop photos and description, since I don’t think it notifies you any other way.

Enjoy!

Great looking desk… EXACTLY what I’ve been looking to build for my home office. I’m curious about the legs, which you indicated came from Ikea. Would you mind posting or sending a few snapshots of them and any “underneath”supports you used?

Also, your shop looks awesome. Glad to see that you were able to rebound from Irene.

Thanks!

Greg,

Even better, here they are on Ikea.com:

Here’s the link to that page
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S19852113/

The legs, top, and frame-that-supports-the-top are all sold separately. The frame comes in many shapes and sizes.

I can make legs cheaper, but the adjustable height of these (about 8 inches of travel), quick deployment, and ability to repurpose them (I’ve changed tops a couple times as I search for the right shape/configuration) make them a winner for me.

Hope that helps!

Oh… here’s a link the leg by itself:

The frame would be easy enough to do in wood.
