Today begins the first build of a new series we’re calling Handbuilt Holiday. The first project is a folding desk. I teamed up with Ana White to create all new gift plans for you to build. And every Friday leading up to Christmas we will share a new plan. We’re starting now so you have time to build all those gifts for this holiday season!

Step 1: Use Ana’s plans and cut the lumber.
Step 2: Assemble the legs.
Step 3: Attach the legs to the frame.
Step 4: Cut 1/4″ plywood top to fit then glue and nail in place.
Step 1: Center the print out on desk surface and tape in position.
Step 2: Using a ballpoint pen trace around letters with lots of pressure.
