I built this desk for my sister in law using wood that I got from a 16ft crate that was being thrown away at my job. I used the plans from Shanty2chic and modified the dimensions and added the X in the middle.
Awesome job in this! Thanks for including the picture of the crate too- it's cool to see where the wood came from and what you turned it into. The center X adds a really nice continuity to the over all look. Did you build it entirely out of wood from that one large crate?
