My sawhorse desk

Submitted by DogDoc25 on Wed, 11/05/2014 - 11:27

This was a fun and relatively easy project. I'd been looking for a compact desk for my tiny office, and decided on this one when I found it. The angles aren't that tricky, and I didn't have a really hard time with cutting the corners on the shelves. This would be a hard one to tackle without a miter saw, so I wouldn't recommend it. But with a miter saw, it's pretty easy and only took me about 2-3 hours to put together! I haven't stained it yet...I was originally planning on a maple color, but I'm liking the lighter look of the unstained wood, so I'll probably end up going with a light golden oak color eventually. Fun project, thanks Ana and Shanty!
