Tips for your homemade office desk.
- Combine the wood with scaffold tubes.
This gives more strength to your desk and it gives a great industrial feel to your furniture.
- Make one or two holes for cables of office equipment.
A hole cutter makes this a very easy task and your study will look a lot tidier.
- Attach a multi plug socket below the table, this keeps most cables out of sight.
- Slightly round the edge of the tabletop with a router or belt sander.
This will prevent irritation on your arms from scuffing at a sharp tabletop edge.
