After building the first quickie plywood desk for my wife, she suggested I make one for the boys.
I decided on the corner style desk to fit both of my boys at the same time and take up the least amount of space.
The design is pretty simple. The frame work is all 2 inch wide strips and they just sandwich together for form the legs.This Desk is built with 3/4 plywood and requires one full sheet and 1/4 sheet.
Here is a link to the downloadable plans I made for this desk.
The first thing I did was mark out all of my radiuses before I cut anything on the plywood. This way I was able to have a large work surface to work with.
The next order of business was to cut out all of the frame work pieces. To fit this desk into just 1 and 1/4 sheet of 3/4 plywood, I even had to use the large scrap piece I cut away for the corner desk
Next I finished up cutting out the rest of the desk top parts. I just used my jigsaw for the majority of cuts.
Assemble all of the frame work for the legs
One of the last things I did was dry fit everything together. I set it up, upside down on my table saw and out feed table
Once I was happy with the dry fit, I traced around the pieces with a pencil that way I knew where to put the glue and exactly where the piece would fit back.
A final coat of paint and it was ready to move up to the boys bedroom.
This was a fun project and the best part is it was a start and finish project in one day!
