Building Home

  1. [...] Since the construction of my room about a year ago (see photos) i having been meaning to build myself a desk. Since the corner where the desk will go is rounded it seemed like custom building it was a better option then getting something store bought, plus i like building things and would get a chance to revive what little carpentry skills i might have. Here are some photos of the process and finished workspace. i think it turned out rather nice. Now what to do with it? Thanks to Peter for lending me the tools. [...]
