I know some of you are waiting on the workout bench, but shipping is super slow for none essentials right now. I just got the final material in the mail, so I am starting on the gym bench this coming week. If you enjoyed this video, let me know what budget build you would like to see next. ** Plans are now available for this Desk: https://gum.co/NMJnr **

Bro I appreciate you using tools that you said you need. It's so annoying when people say for beginners then bring out the industrial size tools

Why not router a groove into the side of the table top to house the LED lights?

Hello. Beautiful Desk. Was that spot just surface glue? Would a Pre Stain work if you run into a situation like that? Thanks!

So I want to do something similar (build a table). How did you deal with the wood warping? How did you get a flat top?

Loved doing this build and putting my own twist on it by giving the front edge a 45 degree bevel and a light round over on the top. I also cut a fading 45 degree bevel on the front of the waterfall tapering wide to thin starting at the top. I also cut a slight angle on the waterfall leg, not to much where id lose stability but enough to give it a modern look. I kept the legs the same although i didn't do the angled 2x4 cuts in it, and left it simple. I also left it bare and just did several coats of Danish oil on that leg and the stretcher. I still look at this thing amazed i built it, and I thank you for giving me the confidence to give it a shot. I got lucky on the jointing as I don't have a jointer but used a large level to reference square on my jobsite table saw. I could of built this based on your video alone, but I spent the 5 buck because I love the work you do, and the knowledge you impart to others, and will purchase other plans soon. I have to constantly be building something, or I don't feel alive (not really but its become an obsession)

Dude I want my money back for your directions. You make your shit way too confusing. This is for beginners. Your cut list is so confusing. Shanty2chic is much easier.

With the way places like Amazon is selling thin flimsey garbage for over 150 dollars plus and calling it desk, makes videos like this gold. Great video.

Dude this desk is beautiful!!! I've Been thinking about making my own desk for work/studying and this was a great inspiration piece. Just found your channel and i love the way you guide us through the videos. Great explanation if we don't have all the tools, where to find those tools, and what step you're at in the building process. All this on a budget, you my good sir are the man! 😊


BLUES 4 YER SOUL . 3 months ago

I just found you when I was looking at garage organizations. Thank you so much for sharing the drawings, and a link for everything used to build the projects will save so very much time. thank you. absolutely amazing. I have built a few projects and have dreamed of many more but always put it off because of all the work in finding the hardware, jigs, and tools. you have been a great help in inspiring me to get out in the garage and get it done.. thanks again.
