Originally started this desk 10 + years ago for my daughter. But after she saw it, she said that she was hoping for “something more princessy”. So, it was propped up in the corner of my workshop collecting clutter and dust.

It has been called out of retirement when my son realized he needed a writing desk for his bedroom/office/remote classroom. Not sure if he wants me to add drawer and pullout writing area as was originally planned.

Now let’s hope that this takes away his last excuse for not getting his schoolwork done.

Ha. Good story and good looking desk. Might be thinking keyboard tray now rather than drawer but I’m sure both would be good.

Nice table!!

I took a Harley apart, it was in boxes for 10 years before I got it back together. The worst part was all the jerks asking me if I was still working on it.

Looks great for a desk for schoolwork! Better than the card table I used growing up!
How did you attach the top?

Have your say...
