2-Person Desk

When my husband and I both started grad school, we needed space for both of us to work on our computers at the same time (after the baby went to bed!). I couldn't find exactly what we wanted to fit the space, so we built it! We got the Kreg Jig, which worked wonderfully! You can see some pocket holes in the picture, but they were hidden once we put all our stuff on the shelves. Our space was smaller than Ana's, so we made the two end units narrower (they still fit our CPUs and we used a doorknob hole drill bit to put cord management holes in the back panel). We love it! We built our deck before, but this was our first foray into furniture-making. We had fun and it turned out so well that we have a list of things to build next (we're thinking a murphy bed).
