Counter Height Craft Desk

Submitted by Stockweb on Mon, 09/28/2015 - 07:39

This was pretty easy for my first build!  Don't look too closely though....  I raised thedesk to counter height to adjust for working while standing and add a bar stool.  The hardest part was adjusting the angle of the diagonal braces.  For the desktop I found a 2' X 6' piece of aspen at the blue big box store.  Sanded well, grey "whitewashed" it and sealed with paste wax.
