Recently, I started working from home. I’d like to have a dedicated desk just for work stuff in my home office so that I don’t have to re-arrange my desk every time I switch back and forth between laptops.
This is as good a time as any to figure out how to make a desk, and I saw a farmhouse-style table at a local antiques store that got the creative juices flowing. In this video, I build the desk top out of 3/4″ tongue and groove upcycled pine barnboard. I glue it all together, cut it to size, do a lot of planing and sanding, round over the edges, and finish the desk with Danish Oil.
