Today we are starting the build of MCTyyyy’s Gaming Desk. This is a traditional build in the sense that I didn’t have any plans for how to build it and will shoot from the hip when necessary during the build.
Part 1 includes building the rough table top and cutting the 4 support beams that will be used for part 2. The design idea is 1×2 boards bolted together using 36″ threaded rods. The desk was originally supposed to be 3′ by 5′, but turned out a little shy in both dimensions due to compression of the boards during assembly and cutting off too much width during final trim.
I did not glue the slats together. They were simply compressed over a few days with the threaded rods and then stablized because of how they will be attached to the base support.
The cost is currently less than $100. Part 2 will introduce a thick glaze and stain that will likely push it over $100 in cost. The lumber was from Home Depot and is cheapest lumber available.
