Farmhouse X Office Desk

4 Materials
3 Days

Hi everyone!

Today i will show step by step how i made a FARMHOUSE OFFICE DESK X-style. I hope you enjoy it:)

On the internet I found this plan. I really liked it and decided to make the same desk.

Materials List:

- Wood board for the table top made of oak - 120*50 cm

- Planks for the table body 7*3 cm

- Planks for the shelves 5*2 cm

- Planks for the box body 2*2 cm

- Planks for the box body 3*0.5 cm

- Wood glue

- Chalked paint or another

- Screws

- Wet wipe

Tools that i used:

- List Kreg Jig Pocket Hole (I used  my handmade Kreg Jig. )

- Electric screwdriver

- Grinding machine

- Сircular saw

- Electric stapler

- Japanese saw

- Right Angle

- Clamp

First I started the process of building the farmhouse desk. I build 3 same desk legs. I measure and cut 6 wood planks for the table body 7*3 cm. For accurate cuts I used  my handmade Crosscut Jig

I also used my homemade Kreg Jig and pocket Hole Screws to attach the 7*3 cm lumber together. Feel free to use a right angle clamp to help you clamp the pieces together.

Next I connected 3 legs together. For this I measured and cut 2 wood planks 7*3 cm, length 70 cm.

And 6 wood poles 7*3 cm, length 35 cm. To connect them I also used wood glue and the Jig for pocket Holes.

For the table shelves I used wood posts that were 5*2 cm. I cut 10 pieces with length 40 cm. I used a Japanese saw. It can cut very accurate and smooth.

The most difficult part to make X side legs. I used wood posts that were 7*3 cm. First I marked and cut 1 part of the X.

Then we should cut 2 part. Next step. I fix one part and apply the second part on top. Setting the corners. I mark the place where I need to make cuts.

I cut out half the thickness of the wood to 7*3 cm.

Then I added some glue ad fix the with clamps.

I inserted those X into the side legs. I drilled holes and screwed in the screws.

Now I must made back V-side. The principle of operation is the same as with the X side legs.

I sanded everything with Grinding machine. Then I began painting.

The next step, I made a drawer in the form of fruit boxes. I cut lot of 3*0.5 cm wood pieces.

Then i glued them and fix with Electric stapler. 

Bottom of the boxes I made out of plywood. I covered the boxes with Danish oil.

Final step! I rounded the corners of the countertop with an edge cutter.

Sanded with 80/120/180 sandpaper

And сovered with Danish oil

Hope you like it! Thanks for watching!
