We are having so much fun decorating our new space. Everything is coming together and our visions are finally starting to turn into reality! When looking for desks, I was struggling to find big enough desks at a decent price. I decided the best route was to build them myself. My goal was to spend as little as possible while still using real wood. I came up with a plan to build a desk out of a single piece of oak plywood. I bought three pieces of plywood, borrowed a table saw from my high school, and set out to make two desks and one coffee table. Each un-stained desk cost me about $55. Here are the plans that I based our construction after.
Once I had the plans drawn out, I enlisted the help of my father. We went to the store to buy the wood, and we began to build. Once we started, it took about 3 hours to do all three pieces. I took some iPhone photos along the way.
