A parsons style desk is ridiculously simple to build because everything is square and symmetrical.
4 4x4s for legs - mine are 58 inches high.
1 inch thick plywood - mine is cut 20'x54'.
3 inch wide flat trim to go around.
Brass bracket hardware.
Home Depot will cut all your wood for you for free.
Baskets are from Home Goods. Totally a Serena and Lily rip off. Eeey!
The before is just ew. But it's what happens when you want a standing desk NOW because you just read an article that said sitting will slowly kill you.
