Making an Upcycled Barnboard Desk

I recently got a new job that requires me to work from home. I decided to build a custom ergonomic computer desk for my office that’s exactly the right size and shape for me to comfortably work at.

There’s an expensive antique store in town that had a fancy farmhouse style table on display that I really liked, so I decided to try to emulate it. I bought some old barn board to use as the top, glued it together, epoxied the gaps, and finished it with danish oil. The legs and frame are made from old 2x4s and 2x6s attached with mortise and tenon joinery, and finished with chalk paint.
