Build Log

I had an idea for my perfect desk a while ago, and decided over the Christmas shutdown at work, that I should build it myself…

Day 1:

Some Wood
Router Table
Some More Wood…

I got all of my cutting done, and a bunch of the wholes drilled out… I was down to the last 8 holes when Meegs got back, and it was time for me to stop working out in the shop, and head home…

Day 2:

Lined up, and glued/screwed on the top…
Starting to glue/screw the other ends…
And now starts the 24 hour wait…

I got up, and grabbed some wood glue (Elmers WoodGlue Max), and was about to start gluing and screwing, and realized that I had drilled out my holes a little bit too small, so had to go through and re-drill all of them… It didn’t take that long to get them re-drilled, and I was ready to start assembling.

Day 3:

This day ended up being real short… Cleaned up a bunch of sawdust (which has become my girls new favorite toy) but I did get everything sanded down, and got one set of cross pieces attached…
