About This Project

Poor quality plywood and pine.

Well, this was a project that was running concurrently with the Benchright coffee table and I finally got it installed along with the walnut stained 1x4 pine desktop. At first (due to inexperience) I stained it and since I had the wrong plywood, it looked horrible. So it got bondoed and painted and converted into a drawer/rollout printer drawer/hanging file drawer and a support for my single piece 12' + desktop.
By the way, its a pain in the butt to keep the cabinet square and I worked it and worked it, believe me.

I was wondering how you made the desk longer. I have an 11 foot wall and i want the top desk to span the whole wall i was wondering how you supported the whole desk, did you need to add any extra supports?
