How to build this desk with drawers.  DIY desk with drawers. Building this DIY Computer desk can be built in a weekend with a few tools and supplies. Building a desk with drawers takes planning. This is how to build a desk with storage. This is a beautiful farmhouse desk with drawers. We will take this computer desk build in 3 parts.  Part 1 (this video) will be building the basic frame and starting the drawers.  Part 2 will be completing the drawers and installing the drawers.  Part 3 will be finishing the desk and trim. In this 3 part series I will show you everything from cutting the material down to size, working out drawer positions, attaching drawer slides, mounting drawer faces, as well as making and attaching trim.  This is a great DIY Desk that takes a little skill but with patience I think most DIY’ers can do it.  I made a couple of mistakes during this build which are pointed out during the build.  I would love to know what you would do with a desk like this.  Comment below!
