    Quick desk for daughter

    My daughter just started nursing school and asking me to make a desk for study. I decided to make a simple desk from plywood.
    It was a interesting project to bend plywood. I used 3/4" birch plywood, next time going to use 1/2" because of weight of final product.

    That should make her happy. Hope she does well in nursing school. My daughter went back to school and became a nurse as a single Mom. She loves being a nurse.

    I like those bent corners Eduard. What was your technique to get that tight radius with 3/4 ply?

    Thank you guys.
    Michael, I was using this calculator to create bend I like. First, I cut just a small piece to see, if it going to work. Actually it was a few pieces, one was completely broken when I start bending, another one come very good. I use Gorilla glue, because it expanding a little bit.
    Thank you, Ed.

    Very nice. Don't worry about the weight it will make it last longer. I like the continuing grain on the drawer fronts.

    Desk is a real eye-catcher. Thanks for sharing.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!
