Big Kid Computer Desk

Submitted by AlohaMama on Thu, 08/22/2013 - 15:23

We needed a desk for my kid's computer. Something simple and functional but with a little customization.

Since we live in Hawaii ocean themes are everywhere in our home. I scrolled out the waves to make the shelf supports original and let light into the little cubby below.

24" across and 18" deep I built this off the rough plans for the Clara desk and customized it to be at a normal table height of 29" so my elementary school children will be able to use this all the way through high school.

Stained with a blue minwax wood stain on the legs and shelf support. Arctic white latex paint for the table and shelf tops.

I'm happy to see other Hawai'i builders sharing their creations. :) I love how you customized your table with the waves. I'd love to know how you made them!

Great blog you've got going! I'm really impressed with your builds, beautiful home!
The waves were done on a scroll saw. It's one of most favorite tools.

Keep building!
