DIY Desk - How to build a desk.  In this video, I built a desk for my wife's classroom.

(Full resolution pictures below)

 This will be her teacher's desk. We built this desk with 1 drawer.  Having the drawer gives the desk much needed storage space.  This DIY desk is 5 feet long and 31 inches wide.  We built it standard desk height at 29 1/2" tall.  Check out the supplies used in this build below.  Affiliate links used in this post: Visit the blog for more pictures and details about this project.
