My daughter needed a desk for school, so here’s a knock-down version of the Shaker Harvard trestle table. The top is made from scrap kitchen cabinet doors. The rest is made from construction 2×12 that has been kicking around for a decade that has been used as temporary post & beam during some repairs, scaffold for painting stairs, and to run wheelbarrows over. This is a desk from garbage. A couple bits, like the wedges, are from oak for no good reason, but I liked the subtly contrasting wood. The finish is a brew of water based dye left over from the blanket chest in the background.
