This summer’s shop project replaces the shakey re-store desk I’ve been using. As usual, I lifted ideas from many LJ sources, but bentium and woodwheeler deserve special mention. The result is solid and sturdy. Made from construction lumber, and, as always, by hand.

Fantastic job, another project on my long to do list!
Love the band aids and granite flattening inlay.

your set up that looks like a lot of thought was put into the design. The little touches like the box joints and the leg connections caught my eye as well. No reason that shop furniture can’t look good too. Nice Work!!

Nice set up. I would sharpen more often if everything was that easy to access and organized.

Nice and functional. Gotta learn to use the rotation app in your software? LOL! It would increase the views. Don’t ask me how I know this. LOL!
