Even though Rae and I both work from home, the office area was one of the least finished parts of the house, with a temporary Ikea-based desk (an adjustable leg system + MDF top) and coffee table as countertop stand-in.
Yuk! That MDF needs some sanding.
So, after 6+ months of working literally 2 feet from each other we decided to hit the workshop for some much needed desk building.
Marmoleum top (no surprises there)
Edge banding on all sides this time
Cutting materials for the built-in behind the desk
Drilling machine for adjustable shelving (so cool)
Iron on edge banding this time
Finished carcass with reused drawers from a previous shop project
