  6. Desk for Home Office

    So, the first time I got interested in wood work was in 2004 when a local company quoted me almost 6 grand to install a desk in a bay window of the room I use as my home office. Not only was the price eye watering but the dimensions were limited. So I took a 10 week evening class at Norwich...
