Live Edge Desk & Sidetable Designed for My Beautiful Dad

1 Material
2 Months

Meet my dad Larry, he is the most wonderful, caring and giving man you will ever meet. So when him and my mom decided to pack up and move from Yuma Az to Boise Id, I decided it was time to make him something special. While the house was being built I asked my mom if there is anything he needs. She replied with, he needs a new desk and maybe a side table for his office. I talked to the hubs and we decided "Challenge Accepted"
Since my dad is a real outdoors man, hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain climber & he has ran many marathons in the past. He also is a woodworker, I believe he was the start of my passion for building and designing
Haha my rustic plans, Matt has his work cut out for him.
Due to the recent demise of my phone, most of my before photos were lost. (Saved to iCloud my foot)
I'm very proud of the finished project. My wonderful, patient hubs did an amazing job bringing my plan to life.

Suggested materials:

  • Live edge slab, maple, and 3/4" pipes  (Lowes, Home Depot and a local lumber jack)
