Woodworking Projects for Beginners – How to Build a DIY Desk



This is an easy woodworking project that shows you how to make a desk. You can build this desk for about $100 in materials using common wood and plywood. I built this desk for my son, who has Autism. We want to use this project to raise Autism awareness. Amazon and other affiliate links are used in this description and they help support this channel.
