Build: Industrial Studio Desk

alt text

When it comes to getting things done, it’s crucially important to have somewhere you can escape to where distractions are at a minimum. I’ve found that when I have a clean, clutter free space, I am usually more focused and productive.

This is where the inspiration for my studio desk came. Something I knew would be a challenging project for my skill level that would produce a useful work surface for years to come.

Overall, this turned out to be pretty fun to build and I encourage anyone who is a beginner interested in basic woodworking and metal fabrication to give it a shot. The tools required include:

  • Table saw
  • Dowel/Biscuit Jointer (Which I didn’t actually use, but definitely would have made things much easier)
  • Hand plane and sander
  • Drill press/Hand drill
  • Mig welder
  • Hand Grinder
