Wednesday Woodworking – Desk Drawing

I’ve been working on two projects.  The desk is coming along, but the pile of plywood doesn’t make for a very interesting picture so here is a view of the SketchUp drawing of it:

more of a desk/bookcase thing.

Hopefully over the long weekend I’ll get enough parts assembled for a nice photo.

and the other project?

Well, the laundry room really needs new cabinets – especially since I removed the old ones this weekend.  More on that later.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    Can I hire you? Seriously, that desk, bookshelf combo is exactly what I need! Maybe I should take up woodworking myself. Can’t wait to see the finished desk😊

    You are right – taking something useful away does make it rather important to get a replacement in place ( otherwise I can see your part completed desk disappearing under a pile of laundry).

    I love the design of this bookshelf and desk! What a wonderfully useful combination. I’d like one, too! Unfortunately, no woodworking takes place at my house. 🙂

    That looks like a fun program you use, maybe something my husband would enjoy. Do you recommend it?

    • I do – it’s a great drawing program and the free version is enough for most people. There is a professional version if you need more features. It’s great for designing woodworking projects and I’ve used it when planning remodels of various rooms in the house.

  9. “especially since I removed the old ones this weekend”–hah! That’s called motivation.

  10. I gotta tell you Andrew, we got a desk that looked a whole lot like your design at BOVA for our older son when he was young. Clearly a classic design. But it was made out of that white crap and he put stickers all over it so by the time we got rid of it, it looked pretty beat up. Are you going to put stickers on yours?

    • No stickers – not on my oak desk. People under the age of 40 won’t be allowed in the same room as my desk. In fact if it turns out nice enough, I might not use it just to make sure it stays in perfect condition.
