Ammon's Art Desk

Submitted by dmcarwin on Mon, 12/26/2011 - 17:31

Yea! I made this for my second boy for Christmas. He wanted yet another art set. When I saw the plans I knew I had to make it! Ana I love you and your site and your amazing ideas! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

After reading all the comments I decided to make the desk part a little wider on each side to make room for the hinges. It worked great. The hinges did rub so I just got out a pocket knife and put some notches where they were rubbing...problem solved! My son loves it and I love that he has somewhere to hide his stuff!

$15 - Mostly for hinges, and hinge supports, hook, and D-rings. I used wood from the cull at HD. I had the moulding on hand. What can I say, I am cheap!
