How do I construct this desk
This desk was an easy construct. I used a pocket gap template to make the piece look extra skilled, with all of the joints hidden. The pocket jig additionally made it sturdier. If you do not have a pocket jig, notice how I made the matching coffee table with just one brad clothespin.
First, I construct the desk floor to the scale I need.
I then used a jigsaw to chop the corners of the desk prime so the legs confirmed.
I then measured and minimize the 1×4 aspect aprons and drilled 3/4″ pocket holes on the ends and going through up (the other way up picture above). I connect the 1×4 apron to the underside of the desk prime with 1 -1/4″ pocket holes.
I then put the legs in place and secured with the pre-drilled pocket holes from the aspect aprons on the legs.
This is what all 4 legs appear like in place.
For the again, I repeated these steps so as to add the again apron with pockets.
The place the again apron meets the aspect aprons I made a gap within the pocket within the center so it does not cross the 2 holes within the aspect apron. Then I joined the again apron to the aspect aprons. I have not tied the legs but.
Repeat these steps – however DO NOT connect to the legs but. First flip –
Then stage all of the legs utilizing a stage.
As soon as the legs are stage and the desk is flat on a flat floor, connect the back and front aprons to the legs from the within with a number of extra screws.
