Hey guys,

Here's my version of the Henry Desk following Ana's plans. There are a few minor differences that were requested by my client:

- A thicker top. I used 8/4 dressed pine (basically 2x6 knotty pine) and I laminated them together.

-Smaller desk - Top 60 inches long.

-A large drawer. 

-Through tenons on the right leg that I made by using a drill press, chisels and lots of elbow grease.  


I used mainly glue and dowels to assemble the pieces together, but also some pocket holes here and there.


Very helpful plan Ana. Thank you!
