Art table for my kids
About This Project

I was getting tired of cleaning marker off my oak table after art time so I decided to just make them a desk. I had been eyeing the x-desk plan for quite some time, I wanted to see how it worked out so I threw one together and was pleasantly surprised at how it came together. The drawer was a bit complicated but I am so glad I made it. My kids love it and it is a nice place to charge my laptop and sit and do bills.
My cousin was opening a call center and she wanted to cut startup costs and I told her we can make the x-desk and cubicles and save $1000's.
For the call center we started and assembly line and had them cut and assembled in 2 days. We used the kreg jig to create the cubicle walls and 2x4's flat we put rigid insulation in the open spaces, covered them with batting and muslin fabric. We completed 8 desks and 2 cubicle pods, we couldn't be happier with the results.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$80.00
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
Black spraypaint on the top and ebony stain on the legs for my personal desk. The office desks were sprayed with black paint.

Great job!

Amazing job on the cubicles and desks - you have a very lucky cousin!

Bartering

Being a stay at home mome one thing I have learned is it is nice to barter. Between sewing and woodworking I am able to save some money in other areas of my life.
