My wife asked if I could make her a desk. She found a picture of what she wanted. That is all I had to go on. It turned out nice and she is happy…and when she is happy, I am happy! :-)
I made it from white pine bought at the big box store, ripped and glued into panels, then planed smooth. For the back, I used pine bead boards (not paneling). That really made this project. And it looks finished from the rear also. The only thing that I wouldn’t consider part of the original item is the drawer slides that I used. But they work just fine (12 inchers).
I finished it with Rustoleum Kona stain and Deft Satin. It looks like the toy box and bookcase I have made for her. I guess we have a theme going. :-)
Hope you like it.
Here are a few construction pics.
