Default Christmas Project

Just finished setting up the last of Santa's gifts - 2 wood desks that I built for the girls for doing their artwork.







And now that I have finished a plate of sugar cookies and a glass of milk, it's time to get to bed...

Toner, those desks are sweet! Did you design them, or is that a pattern you found? Very nice job -- I like the propped lid with the safety hinge.

Merry Christmas!

I found a really beat up version of the desk at a garage sale quite a number of years ago and used it as a template to make copies. I had made a couple of them years ago for my two nieces and it was time to make a couple more for my girls.
