Set your hopes up way too high, the living is in the way we try

Making a desk! Like most good things: quick and dirty

Some 1x6s, already cut to length from the lumber yard

Laid out in the desired L pattern, we'll use the scraps to join them

Mounts for the ikea legs. They are attached to the braces that support the planks

Assembled!

Near side is supported on a filing cabinet
