My wife was lucky enough to get an educational leave from her teaching job and needed a place of her own to study. We have an office in our basement but I use that to play my guitars and occasionally work from home. I didn’t want to take apart another room to make a new one. I told her I would make her a new desk. I had a bunch of left over lumber so most of the materials I had already. My garage isn’t heated so I’ll finish or paint it in the spring.
