NEED A DESK FOR HOMESCHOOL OR VIRTUAL LEARNING? YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

AS OF AUGUST 2020: SCHOOL STARTS SOON AND SCHOOL DESKS ARE SELLING OUT EVERYWHERE AS PARENTS PREPARE TO HOMESCHOOL. WHY NOT SAVE MONEY AND MAKE YOUR OWN! HERE IS AN EASY TO FOLLOW DIY VIDEO I MADE WHILE MAKING MY CHILD’S DESK. PAIR WITH THE FREE PLANS FROM MY WEBSITE HTTPS://WWW.MAKING-MAKERS.COM AND AFTER WATCHING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE THIS SIMPLE BUT MODERN DESK FOR YOUR CLASSROOM FOR LESS THAN $100.

I HAVE MADE SEVERAL FOR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND THE GREAT THING IS YOU CAN CUT THE LEGS TO ANY SIZE DESK YOU NEED. I WILL LINK BELOW SOME HELPFUL GUIDES WHEN DECIDING THE PROPER DESK HEIGHT. IF YOU DECIDE TO MAKE THIS, PLEASE BE SURE TO SEND ME PICS SO I CAN ADD TO OUR UPCOMING MAKER AWARDS AS I WOULD LOVE TO HIGHLIGHT YOUR WORK! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE SHOOT ME AN EMAIL MAKINGMAKERSDIY@GMAIL.COM. ~ MIKE FROM MAKING MAKERS 

HERE ARE SOME HELPFUL LINKS REGARDING DESK HEIGHTS, HOWEVER JUST BUILD WHATEVER BEST SUITS YOUR CHILD’S NEEDS.
