Desk made with 10″ oak flooring cut-offs

I made a new desk out of cut-off flooring boards using several tools from the Tool Library.

First, I used some long clamps to help glue the boards together.


Then, I used a palm grip sander from the Tool Library to smooth down the seams.

Here’s the finished desk.
