I have always had a small computer desk that I manage to fit my My Mac, Work Laptop, Neat scanner and 11 x17 Photo Scanner. This did not leave me much room for any paperwork or research books. I have looked at a couple of computer desk and some simple plans but could find anything I like in my price range. I did not feel comfortable to buy a chip board or MDF desk from a store if I could build a computer table from solid wood.
So I decided to follow the same method I used for our Dinning table. I went down to the local lumber yard to find some KD stock 2×6 and 4×4. The total cost for all the material was about $ 108.
It took me about 2 hours to clean up the the wood and mill it to the right dimensions. This is standard construction grade lumber. Douglas Fer is the make of wood down here, was hoping for some pine but the Douglas Fer is just as good.
