Simple and spacious desk

This huge desk was built in just one hour using a SpecRite Teak Panel and RapidMesh Furniture Legs.





The project


I have been working at home now for about 15 months and my home office was very difficult to work in with two smaller desks.


I finally got sick of it and bought a SpecRite Teak panel from Bunnings and a couple of RapidMesh furniture legs.


In an hour, I transformed the space. Simple, easy and ended up being very good value compared with buying a desk this size. It's 2.4m long and over a metre wide.

Nice looking table!


Can you please share the specifications of screws you used?

Hi @vikasb,


The maximum length of screw you can use depends on what top you choose. As the tops in different projects are different thicknesses, no one screw can be used for the RapidMesh 70 x 73.2 x 6cm Black Santos Steel Tube Table Furniture Legs. The Zenith 10G x 30mm Gold Passivated Type 17 Countersunk Head Timber Screws will be a fairly safe choice if the timber you choose is at least 30mm thick.
