Project Information

We bought my wife a adjustable stand-up computer stand for her desk at work. She has decided it takes up too much of her desk top so she asked if I could build her a separate table to put it on. I had been covered up with other projects she decided needed to be done around the house so I jumped at a chance to put in some shop time. Maybe she took pity on me???
Had three 2×6x8 pieces of walnut I had been holding onto for the right project and decided it was their time. Pretty simple design with a couple of simple extra touches ( taped legs, "flutes" on the outside edges of the legs, cut outs on the apron boards and etc.) that only I will probably notice. Working within the available space requirements she gave me, it came in 36×27x 29. The top is 1 3/4" thick so it has some heft to it. Finished with clear gloss polyurethane.

Mighty fine looking desk Buster. Perfect project for that walnut. Hopefully you earned enough points to get more shop time in soon and put off the to-do list.
