This is the first thing I've ever built and with a few minor imperfections, it turned out great. I wanted a rolling table for my laptop, but needed a larger one than the plan for my big laptop and to use a mouse. My table is about 26" x 18". Since I don't have the proper saw, I bought a sheet of MDF at Home Depot and had them do the cutting for me and it cost abut $35 bucks total. Casters were about $8 & paint was $11. I decided to do mine with the shelves so I'd have storage for laptop peripherals like usbs, external hard drive, and cords. I was really scared to get started screwing stuff in, but once I did it was pretty easy. I did slightly crack the wood on my first screw and read up about it and figured out I screwed too close to the edge. It only took a couple hours to put together, the painting was the long part.
