Submitted by grarob1956 on Wed, 09/02/2020 - 09:11

With the school year approaching and covid restrictions in place I decided to build my grandson a kindergarten home school desk. The desk dimensions are 2' X 4' X 25" high. I incorporated the Ana White famous X design on the frame. The wood is pine 2" X 3" frame and 2" X 2" for the X's.

The chair:
The back legs 30" high that I ripped from a 2" X 6" to 2 1/2 inches wide and angled the back rest at 6 degrees.
front legs are 15" high and the seat is at 15 1/2 high. The seat is 12" X 14 1/2 made from 5/8 plywood. "My grandson is 41 " tall so this allows for some growth.
I attached some glide felt adjustable to the legs and table for smooth easy movement.
