I had some MDF shelves I took out in the basement that where 20" wide. I was about to give them away on craigslist but instead here we go...
Witness the 2 hour $6:00 Wraparound Hobby Desk
Step 1: The Hardest Part
Loosing light and friends are on their way.
Figure out your desk hight and attach cleats to the wall...
Naturally I ripped a piece of MDF into 3 4" wide strips. Marked the studs and slapped them on the wall.
I'm going quick remember... Yes it is level yes it is secure!
Side counter hight is 42". Normally standing desk's are 44" but that would not alow me to look into or work on my planes fuselage's easly.
The desk under the window is a standard 38"
Step 2: 2X4
Take the same measurements as the cleats on the wall.
Cut the 2x4's
Pre drill and countersink
Secure the counter to the legs and the cleats with screws.
