At the end of the day brian has the best solution. You do not want the boards for a full project cut at hd, it just doesn’t work. First no employee will sit there and cut each board, they will do a few boards and if you haven’t found someone who is too distracted they’ll even make a few of them the same length but not enought to do a full bench. Going back multiple times will get what you want but not the accuracy you need.

Building a desk like that will be an exercise in frustration if you lack both the tools and the experience. Build the simple idea and then see if the college has shop or art classes and turn the desk into a project.
