June, 2013—Problem: Computer monitors sitting too low on the desk, making it uncomfortable to see them. Solution: Build a stand to raise them up. Been wanting to get this done for months!
Wood for this project is maple 3/4-inch furniture-grade plywood, edge-banded with the iron on birch edging. Sanded to 220 and then followed by Minwax Pre-Stain, General Finishes’ oil-based “Warm Cherry,” and 3 coats of water-based gloss poly. Joinery done with the Kreg pocket hole jig, course screws, with maple plugs (see last photo). Wood glue used in this project only to hold the pocket plugs in.
