How to Build a Simple Desk | Office Desk DIY

Working in the office, whether it’s your home office or at work, you know how important office furniture is to your productivity. The desk is an essential piece in your office space, but it doesn’t have to be the most expensive one.  If there is a piece of office furniture that you should invest your money in, it’s the chair, as the uncomfortable office chair can really be detrimental to your health. The desk on the other hand, should be functional, comfortable, flat and not wobbly. If it fits your office space perfectly – even better. And unlike the chair, you can actually build a desk that ticks all the boxes, by yourself, very quickly and for less than a half of the price of a lousy fiberboard office desk bought in Walmart that’s going to fall apart anyway.

We will show you how to build a simple office desk that is cheap and easy to build for people that have never done anything like this before. Believe it or not, it costs approximately $15 to build this table. You can’t buy one for that amount of money. All the tools you need for this project, and many more, you can get at Shopper Alati. Let’s get started:

What do you need for building a desk?
