This is the first project that i completed. I made a few minor changes. I used a Kreg jig to fix the shelves into the book cases. I also wanted the top of the desk to be thicker so i glued and screwed two pieces of 3/4 hardwood ply together and finished the edges. I then added heavy drawer slides to handle the drawers as i had made them larger.

Estimated Cost
$150
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Plywood
Finish Used
I used a White enamel to finish the table, then a few coats of poly-acrylic on the top to make it easy to wash off marker and craft paint. I added two long drawer pulls to make the drawers easier to open.
