Compact Desk

You’ll need a few pieces of hardware to build the compact desk. The magnetic catches (26559) and drawer guides (89690) came from Rockler. And I was able to order the bevel edge drawer pull (02W34.23) and the oval and round grommets (00U10.01 and 00U08.51) from Lee Valley. The only other hardware items you’ll need are a piece of 1/4"-dia. steel rod for the shelf pins and some ordinary woodscrews.

In addition to the hardware, you’ll need some plastic laminate to cover the plywood surfaces of the desk. Although you can use any color or texture of laminate you want, I ordered a 5' x 12' sheet of Antique Copper LS (D494-60) laminate from WilsonArt. And for the underside of the desk top, I ordered a 4' x 4' sheet of backing laminate.
