Built in desk for my wife.

The only tools I used were a table saw, a sander, a drill and a kreg jig. The small rail for the drawer above the CPU is actually nail gunned in though.

Howard, one coat of stain on the back is probably a good idea to keep the wood from taking on more humidity on one side than the other....

Very nice! I have a built in desk that i built very badly a very long time ago, and now that I have the Kreg jig, all kinds of ideas are flying around in my head as to how to redo it. This is a great looking example. Mind me asking how you did the top? Great job!

As soon as I get all the coats of clear coat on, I will have to carry the entire thing upstairs in the separate pieces so I will take some pictures of the back side. Be fore warned, I didn't stain the backs... hehehe

Howard, the project turned out great. I like the finish. Very impressed that you built it using only 4 tools! Would you happen to have any photos of the pocket-holes being used to join the boards? A lot of our members like to see the 'business side' of the project so they can reproduce in their head how it was constructed!

Thanks for posting this great project!

I just finish the first coat of clear coat and it is in my garage drying. I'll post more pictures later. I also did cabinets for above the desk and I already put them up. Pics will follow.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
