As a graduate student, I spend a lot of time reading and writing. I knew I needed a desk for my apartment, but I couldn't find an option that fit my style and my budget. Then I found this plan on ana-white.com and knew I'd found my solution! I was intimidated by the size and complexity of the piece, but little by little the desk of my dreams came together. This project was a learning process for me on many levels and was a true test of persistence. I completed this project over the course of about a year, working a couple of hours here and there when I could in my brother's basement. The satisfaction of having built exactly the desk I wanted by myself is so rewarding, and with such a beautiful and organized place to work, studying is almost pleasant!
