Built in Desk

Submitted by rosiejane on Mon, 05/11/2015 - 23:38

This desk is massive at 3.4m long (over 11 feet). Initially it was going to be a homework station for the kids but my husband decided that he'd like to use it as his office.
I'm somewhat embarrassed that this took well over 12 months to complete and I was easily distracted by other projects along the way. I made many mistakes but I learnt something from every one of them.
I modified plans to suit my space and used sketchup to plan it all out.

Type of Wood
laminated pine panels with mdf substrate for desktop; mdf cabinets with pine trim; mdf drawers with pine drawer fronts

I love this!  Do you have more information on how you did the top?  It looks like one solid piece, and I'm just curious where you purchased the panels and how you built the top to look so nice.
