Not sure if you knew this but Luke is quite the handy man.
He built this desk. No big deal.
Our cost: $2.00.
Pallet wood was free. You can drive around town and find pallet wood at nearly any business. Just ask before you take it.
The hardware on the drawer was reused from a dresser we are getting rid of.
The ugly white hinge you see on the below left diptych: $1.00. There are actually two, so $2.00 total.
I thought it would be "rustic" to have big hinges but I was wrong. It looks like crap. So Luke is going to fix it soon.
The hinges are in place because the right side of the desk folds up to prop books on for more comfortable reading. (It's a study desk)
Luke was super excited to build this desk. Nothing was going to get in his way of completing it. Not eating, water breaks, boggle, nor the 100 degree weather. (He was building outside)
Below: The classic "5 more minutes until I'm done," which really means two more hours until I'm done.
So there you have it. A study desk. Built from pallets. Nearly free.
