This desk is to fit in an very specific space and is very short (26 1/2” tall) to suit the needs of my very short grandma!

Made from maple and a purchased countertop.
The bottom drawer is a file cabinet. Drawer slides are nice bottom mount soft closing Blum slides. Sprayed lacquer finish.

It was a fun, quick build. I’m also working on cabinets for a whole house, so I am all set up and in the mode already.

Just remember to remove the helper before installing the desk, Pete! Though I’m sure grandma would appreciate the visitor!

Great work for a quick build. Beautiful baby you have there.

It would appear sewing could be incorporated into such a desktop. Whatever Granny does, you gotta love a custom fit.

Absolutely love the “Kid corral” :-)

Nice desk, I like the Bookcase as part of the desk legs.
