I am starting the process of finding a new desk. My big question right now is whether to buy one or build one. I am learning towards build on. By investing some time I can save myself some money and make myself something I can be proud of.
So I am looking into designs and woods. This desk keeps coming up in my searches. I like the idea of the organizational drawers, but I don’t like the free standing legs. I would probably seek to design something with drawers or cabinets on either side.
They use this layered plywood which is cheaper. It has an interesting look to it, but a part of me is thinking you could get some cool design from reclaimed wood. Or even a nice grained hard wood could be nice.
Overall, I have a lot of decision to make about desk design. I want something simple and useful, that looks nice and clean. I’ll update you as I move along in the process as well as show you some of the things that I happen upon in my research.
