I Built A Goddamn Writing Desk With My Bare Hands And You Can Too

The first rule of desk club is make your own goddamn desk.

Get some timber.

Sand that shit.

Here is a macro photo of a sanding block.

Screw it.

This is my electric screwdriver.

At this point I realised I'd forgot to glue it, so had to undo the screws again.

Here are the two planks joined together.

A desk without legs is just some planks of wood on the floor.

Are these the right screws? No. Is that a problem? Yes.

I used them anyway.

Flip that glorious bastard over and stand it up.

Is it level?

Wax the fuck out of it.

This is the polishing cloth I used to apply the wax.

Put Apple products on it.

Upload pictures of your goddamn writing desk to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Tinder.

If your desk doesn't look this good, that's too bad. We can't all be the Gary Busey of desk-building. BOSCH!
