This is a custom table I made for a client who needed a small writing and laptop desk. The wood is maple with a light coat of Colonial Maple oil based pigment stain and top coated with water based poly. I personally would have omitted the casters, but that is what the client put on it.

32” X 16” X 24”

Note: I made this project in high school. If you are looking for my business website with all of my latest work here is the link .

Nice design and build : )
Does the 32” include the casters or before adding them ?
I agree with you about the casters. Makes it look more like a kitchen cart than a desk.
At least you found some quality looking ones though : )

The 32” doesn’t incude the casters. They came from Rockler.

Quite a nice table; the casters must do the job for what is needed.
And, by the way, Welcome to LJs!
