Fancy X Desk

Here is the 95% completed Fancy X Desk. The plans were very easy to follow. I would call it an intermediate level project simply because of the angle cuts. I had to reduce the size a little to fit our space. Built it in an afternoon and then applied one coat of primer and two coats of black paint. I have to wait until it is a little warmer outside to apply the poly as I didn't want to do it inside and my garage is about 30 degrees. I haven't figured out what it cost me to build but I feel comfortable saying it was hundreds less than it would have cost to buy at retail. Very excited about the result.

I like how you made this shorter, could you tell me how long you made it, and what the length of the 45 degree supports at the back are? I assume you had to shorten the due to shortening the length, but I can't figure how out long they should be.

Thanks! I'm really excited to start this!
