Easy DIY Wood Crate Desk – Perfect for Homeschool

Step 2. Attach framing & trim.

To attach the trim to the edges, use wood glue and nail into place with 1.5″ finish nails.

Step 3. Fill nail holes & sand.

Fill all nail holes on trim with wood putty. Once putty has dried, sand to smooth and while you’re at it – give everything a nice light sanding.

Step 4. Seal.

Apply 3-4 coats of polyurethane to seal with staining rag. Lightly sand in between coats with 220 grit sandpaper. Let it dry throughout before handling.

Step 5. Attach 4 wood crates together.

Arrange the crates and hold flush while using a brad nailer with 1 inch nails to secure the crates at the end.

Be sure to only nail the crates on the ends because that wood is thicker (3/4″) and the slats of the crates are 1/4″ thick. Together that is an inch and we’re using 1 inch nails.

Step 6. Place desk top on.

Simply lay the desktop on top of the crates and make sure they are centered.
