  • New Desk

    While this has nothing to do with scroll sawing, I thought I would share it as a general wood working project that I'm reasonably proud of. This is a desk that I designed and built myself. Its overall dimensions are 5'-5" x 9'-1 1/2" with 28" deep work surfaces.

    My company moved to new digs where I have a much larger office and since I was unable to find a desk to buy that gave me what I wanted, I decided to build my own.

    Overall, the project took less than 3 weeks of weekends and nights (53 hours of build and finish time) but I got it done in time for the move!

    The attached pictures illustrate the major milestones from the beginning to final assembly.

    Looks good. It looks like you can break it down for transport so what kind of joints and connectors did you use?

      Thanks Rolf, I used pocket screw joinery (Kreg) for the vast majority of it specifically because I needed the ability to break it down for transport.

          Congratulations on your new office space! The desk came out really well, and I'm sure it will help make you feel at home in the new location. Not to mention creating a lot of admiration among your co-workers. Wouldn't be surprised if you started getting orders.

              Thanks everyone, I do fully intend to decorate the walls with scroll saw artwork

              Bill, I used Minwax wipe on high gloss polyurethane for the finish: 4 coats for the tops, 3 for the sides and 2 everywhere else.
