Starting the Desk

I started working on the desk now that the work bench is complete.  We need a desk something awful.  Right now, all the “desk” work is getting done on a worn out scratched up old table.  Here’s a quick pic of what the desk will look like.

I don’t know about you, but at this point of the project I always feel a bit overwhelmed.  I know that I need to break the project down into small steps and work to complete those.  I have to tools, the plans and help if I need it, but never the less I seem to always feel this way at the beginning.

Here’s a quick gallery of what I done so far.

  1. Marilyn, the one thing that comes to mind is the opening for the keyboard. I built it to plan and discovered (later of course) our keyboard was too tall with the back tabs raised to clear the opening. Not a show stopper but annoying. We since switched to a Mac, so the small keyboard now rests on top of the desk and the original keyboard area stores printer paper. I really enjoyed building this desk and we continue to use it daily. Looking forward to seeing your progress pictures.
