I made this desk for my son, Gunner, as he needed one for his apartment for collage. I used old cull boards from a sawmill, and plained them out, and turned out pretty good.

I think this turned out a LOT better than “pretty good!” I’d be proud to have this one in my house.

Nice looking desk. I’m sure your son will get good use from it in the next four years, then he’ll treasure it for life.

The drawer handles are like fingernails on chalkboard. Still – please don’t get me wrong – it is a nice desk. They are the first thing I noticed though.

That is a really neat desk. It has that old-school feel. I am sure he will get years of use out of it.

I really enjoyed looking at this project. Very clean simple lines and the wood has a bunch of character.You can’t buy that in any lumber yard. Great job.

-- Have a great day.
