no previous part Part 1 of Computer Table series Part 2: Assembly »

I usually enjoy tradition techniques for my woodworking but when my wife ordered a new computer and then asked if I could have a desk ready by the time it got here I had to think of something faster. I choose a very old design from an article in PWM a few years back and modified it to fit my needs, pocket hole joinery and my limited turning ability. Here are the two side assemblies and the top being glued up.

The work so far looks great! How did you standardize the leg turnings? I’m a neophyte turner myself, and I have issues getting identical turnings.

They are not really all that consistent, but I marked all the elements off the original and parted down to measured diameters with a pair of calipers. Other than that just by site. Thanks for looking David.
