First off I apologize for the sideways photos, I tried turning, resizing them, black magic and crying but nothing would make it right! My grand daughter, who is the coolest girl on Earth wanted a place to keep her little laptop (I never got a laptop at her age, all I got was a stick) so I whipped together a little desk for her! She digs it!

Anyone who can enlighten me on getting my pics horizontal will be thanked!

Neat little desk… Looks like she approves!
And I know what you mean about a laptop for a child! My granddaughter (who is 6) can use a computer and her mom’s cell phone without batting an eye!

I would say the main thing is a very happy and cute customer!

Excellent desk! I wish I had one like this when I was in school. I’m a lefty and we had the kind that were made only for right handed people. This is a better desk that is fair no matter which hand you write with.

Bravo Monte! Nice job on the flip! I just flipped a table saw! :)

Beatiful. The use of the lumber for not movement of the desk is very good idea.
Congratulations. Cool design (and she look very happy)

Really nice desk and it’s obvious that she loves it.

Thanks all and thanks monte for squaring up my pics! I can’t take credit for the basic design, I got the design looking at little desks online. I put my own spin on it though. Thanks again!

Very cool. Another one in the queue for my daughter. Is that seat adjustable?

It’s a great job. I’m thinking the seat AND the desk look adjustable. Are they?

Thanks! They’re not adjustable, I measured my grand daughter Charlotte and made it a little bigger, when she grows out of it I’ll build her a full size desk and this one can go to her little sister Emily.
Thanks again!

Great looking desk. I’m sure the new owner will spend a lot of time using it. Projects for the little ones are the best, and hopefully you’ll get a hug for your work.
