    you should make it out of ply wood, 2X4's and poly coating

    save a few hundred, and make something MUCH better than any store will sell.
    use Heavy Duty kitchen cabinet ball berring slides for the drawer guids

    There are actually sh*t tons of them although they do have quite varying degrees of craftsmanship but they're all better than I could probably do lol

    Hey Tee, go to a couple of yard sales, or a flea market, and look for a good real wood office desk, it doesn't matter if it has a keyboard tray, you can always add one later. I picked one up for free last month, and it's huge, & heavy, 5' long, 38" wide and weighs close to 200lbs. Has 3 deep draws on each side and one in the middle that locks all the other draws when it's close, the woman I got it from even had the keys. She wanted to get rid of the desk due to her husband passing away, and the desk was in great shape. Do yourself a favor and see if there's a Free Cycle site in your area, you wouldn't believe all the great stuff they giveaway.

    2 small (cheap filling cabinets.
    1 door blank 36 inches wide, layed, or PL400 glued to the top of the cabinets. (only use a FEW DOTS of this glue 5 is to many)
    polyurithan coat over what ever you stain or paint it
    this should all be available at home depo / lowes and cost less than 250 bucks

    result = good desk
    add ply wood w / 2 screws through door into cabinet tops = desk you can DANCE on top of

    still add a poly coat,, very important

Has 3 deep draws on each side and one in the middle that locks all the other draws when it's close, the woman I got it from even had the keys. She wanted to get rid of the desk due to her husband passing away, and the desk was in great shape. Do yourself a favor and see if there's a Free Cycle site in your area, you wouldn't believe all the great stuff they giveaway.


    most people ether sell those or put them for free on cragslist

    fix your current desk = place a 2X4 under the now unsuported side
    1 stripe of glue down the center for the length of the board on the outside wall contact side
    push FIRMLY up agenst desk top untill it is secure, level, and unmoving, while flush with the length from front to back

    put 4 screws (with wide washers) through side of desk into 2X4

    result = stronger than it was whene you bought it new

    cost = less than 30 bucks


    ps. find the length of the desk from front to back, and ask the store associate to cut your 2x4 to that length if you dont have a saw
    a 45 degree angle on the cut will help to hide the 2x4 from view, yet still give 100 % structural support if used correctly

    i want a wider desk. i dont want to fix this one. it's old and it's time to move on. it had a good run but now it's time to say goodbye. right now i have the computer on the side sitting on a wood stand. i dont like my computer on the floor, i prefer it on my desk. like i said before space on the desk is a little cramped so im gonna get something wider so everything will fit nicely spaced out. Stan i live in the hood the yard sales around here pretty much suck.
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!
