I’ve built two of these desks, both for my two sons. Since their rooms are small, I wanted to design something that would give them a lot of space to work, but not look like it fills up the room.
The material is reclaimed 2×4s that have been milled down to remove the rounded edges and other defects. The entire project was glued and screwed, using pocket holes for the frame.
The top is 1/2” MDF with 4” square blocks glued to the underside to register it to the frame. The top was then wrapped in the scrap pine left over from the milling process. You can see my old Grizzy brad nailer in the picture, still going strong after 15 years.
The entire project was covered with semi-gloss poly, about 5 coats with a light sanding between each. No stain, they wanted it to look natural.
An easy build, could have been completed in a day, but life gets in the way sometimes!
