Bay Window Standalone Desk

Submitted by jonnymac on Sat, 07/19/2014 - 16:16

This is a bay window standalone desk. The desk has an enormous top and fits snugly into the bay window. It did not have to be attached to the wall. There are four pieces in total: the top, 2 base units and a support that spaces the desks at 36" and further secures the top.

The base unites are built from the File Base Classic Wall Storage System and the top is glued up 2x12s that were planed down and straight edged.

Estimated Cost
$175.00
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine 2x12s for the desk top and 3/4" birch for the base. 1/2" Blonde was used for the drawers. Face frame was a mixture finger jointed whitewood and poplar.
Finish Used
The bottom was painted with Chalk paint from Lowes and the top is stained with one coat of Jacobean. Both top and bottom were sealed with a Minwax Protective top coat.

This was my first desk to build and learned a great deal. Looking forward to my next project!
