Rather than buying a new wooden desk for hundreds of dollars, this Instructables contributor used his creativity to built one himself — almost entirely out of recycled materials.
Not only is this an innovative use of old boxes and crates, the project is simply explained by the author, who notes that he’s not a professional carpenter, just a guy who wanted to build a desk as inexpensively as possible.
In addition to being low-cost and made of salvaged parts, the finished product is artistic. How could you ignore the urge to sit down to work if this desk were in your office?
