In 2010 my daughter was studying to be a nurse practitioner and needed a desk for school, so I worked up a simple design that could be portable (well, on wheels anyway) and serve as a homework station with a couple of drawers. Then she wanted a sliding puzzle tray, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how she found time to do puzzles while going to Vanderbilt full time. But being a good dad, I did it. I’m convinced that the desk helped her to graduate with a 3.4 grade average..
The 24’ x 36” top is attached to the sides with biscuits and small angle brackets that are visible in the side view. the sides fit into a groove in the feet and the puzzle tray has an X patterned support glued beneath it for rigidity.
I put a golden oak finish on and it didn’t look too bad. It’s made of birch plywood.
