How to Make a Beautiful DIY Live Edge Desk With a Drawer
Live edge tables are pretty on trend right now, and I'm feeling really proud of our recent project, so keep reading. I made this DIY live edge desk, paired with powder-coated black legs, and complete with a matching keyboard slide!
Let me show you how I did it.
1. Clean, sand, and fill
We started off with this beautiful wood slab.
We then cleaned it, sanded it down and filled the holes with epoxy.
2. Seal with oil
I then used Odie's oil to seal it up. This kept its natural look and allowed the wood grain to shine through.
3. Attach the table legs
We decided to use these black powder-coated metal legs. I love how they look in contrast to the natural wood.
Once we attached the legs, it was time to add in the best feature- the sliding keyboard tray.
4. Add the sliding keyboard hardware & drawer
We purchased sliding keyboard hardware for the drawer.
And then I added a sweetwood slab as the drawer. We made sure to match the hardware on the underside of the desk to the legs.
And that is it! It looks so awesome.
