How to Build an Epic Work Desk for Under $75 | Custom All Wood Desktop
Green Light Life

Green Light Life

Published on 2 years ago

Step by step guide on how to build this custom all wood desk for computers, studying, work bench, whatever you need. And how to do it for under $75.

Here is a link to the pocket hole jig I used. This is how I created the slanted holes to screw together the pieces of wood: https://amzn.to/2KtXKPr

Here were the legs I used: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hettich-2-3-8-in-x-28-in-Stainless-Steel-Adjustable-Look-Table-Leg-Set-of-4-912734900/311845948?cm_mmc=ecc-_-THD_READY_FOR_PICK_UP__V1_M1_CA-_-Product_URL&modalType=drawer

My problem with these types of desks with the 4 legs is that they are quite wobbly

Build a desk for under $75... but you have to own hundreds of dollars worth of equipment to make it ;)

Bro I worked at home depot and I have never seen such straight and flat lumber. And I worked as a supervisor in Lumber and we can never get straight 2 x 10's, 12 and 20 footers in orders. The 2 x 4's were much worse. What store did you go to so I can commend the lumber department there.

Just spread the glue with your finger. It goes faster and spreads more evenly.

Biscuit joiner helps to connect them as well. Also running them through a plainer helps create a flat surface as well. I have a build in mind. I can't start it until I clear the garage out some more to "complete" my wood shop. I'm just watching videos bc I'm excited about starting the project lol.

Any other oil layers (conditioning oil, etc) or you just left it after the stain? Plenty of tools.. not much know-how.


xCaPz . 3 months ago

When you do pocket holes like that how do you know what length screws to use? How do you know the screw won’t push out to the other side when going in at that angle?

Did you put a finish on it like Poly or Lacquer?
