Assembling a Standup Desk

We are building a small standup desk for a patron who found the new desk section of the website: http://www.garyweeks.com/desks.htm.

Gary Weeks Standup Desk

The frame of the desk was assembled in two days.  On the first, the two sides were glued.  This post features photos taken on the second day of assembly.

Washing the Glue from the Surface

We keep a bucket of water with a rag and old toothbrushes to scrub away the squeezed out glue.
