I built this for my brother-in-law. He and my sister were having difficulty finding a desk that could accommodate his ridiculous height (6’5”)and all his computer equipment; one that wouldn’t break the bank anyhow.
This simple design was the solution. Great to have woodworkers in the family right?
This oak is actually left over from my greenhouse build because that was a kit that I modified to better suit the client’s aesthetic. I planed and shaped all the rough pieces and filled the knots and holes with clear resin.
The underside has a supporting structure that stiffens the whole assembly and when they are ready to move, it can be knocked down to 3 manageable pieces.
Let me know what ya’ll think!

Nice build and good touch with the rods in the end

Nice – having an extended surface area is great for a desk. How did you design the mechanism to allow it to break down into three sections?
