Creative DIY Desk Ideas

I’m finally building that window desk as a place for my teens to do homework, and I’m starting with these IKEA cabinets as bases. I have a great idea for how I plan to make the 10 foot wide DIY desktop that I can’t wait to try.

I’m not ready for the words “back to school” quite yet, it’s only July, but I want to be ready by the time since mine start in August so this project has moved to the front of my priority list. My idea is to create a desk similar to this one below, with a long desktop set on top of two cabinet bases, but my idea is different for the top.
