Step 1: Planning the Layout of the Desk
I drew these on clear plastic sheets so I could lay them on top of each other then separate them in order to look at each group of components individually.
Step 2: Magical Stuff That Happens Without Any Photos
With the help of my pops, a router and a hacksaw I made the tabletop & shelves.
The Kee Klamp parts were ordered from two different suppliers.. each had, separately, the parts I needed.
These guys were great: http://www.simplifiedbuilding.com/store/components/kee-klamp.html

Step 8: Details, Finishing Installation
