My step-daughter received a new computer for Christmas two years ago. We didn’t really have a computer desk so instead of buying one of those cheap particle board p.o.s. desks (like I remember from my childhood) I figured I’d make one…my way. Turns out she also received a small glass top desk from another relative. It only had space for a monitor and a keyboard though. So off I went.

I knew it was to be painted so poplar and plywood were my candidates. Pocket hole construction throughout just about. I made it so that, well you probably already see it, the pc could rest on a shelf and the new wireless fax/printer/scanner/copier could sit on top. The bottom cabinet now supports our superfluous cord, paper, and gerbil food supplies. It was a relatively easy build and was done at a time were my tools and experience weren’t shining. This whole project left me thinking one thing though…

What on earth does a 7yr old need with her own home office?

Looks very nicely made, and no doubt way superior to those p.o.s. particle board jobs I also remember. BTW, I am assuming p.o.s. stands for “piece of **” (correct ?).

Plywood Office Shelf…I thought everyone knew that! Thanks for your compliments MC! I’m quite envious of some of your turnings!

Looks really great and I am glad you don’t like those particle board, mdf, OSB [pos] creations.
