A favorite past time of mine is to see what I can turn scrap into out in the shop. It seems others like reader Jeffrey Immer play the same game. Jeff turned his pile of scrap into this sweet desk set.
Of course “scrap” is a relative term that differs from one shop to another; however I can say that I don’t see anything here other than hardware I couldn’t go to the scrap pile right now and duplicate — so we’re calling this one a fair ball. We love the construction of Jeff’s desk and the simple pieces it took to make it.
It’s not like other projects you might see on TV where they just found hundreds of dollars worth of rare, perfect hardwood lying around. That doesn’t happen to anyone but Norm and the guys at a lumber mill.
