How to Build a Custom Computer Desk : How to Choose Materials for your Custom Oak Computer Desk


Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village,
in this video clip I will be talking about choosing materials. I have chosen to make
my desk out of oak, now there is two different types of oak materials that we are going to
be working with. The first material is a solid oak board, the next material is a veneer oak
ply wood. What it is a ply wood with a thin piece of oak put over the top of it to make
it look like one big giant solid oak board. The oak veneer plywood comes in four feet
wide by eight feet long sheets. It is much cheaper to buy it this way then glue a whole
bunch of boards together and get a whole big massive board. In addition it is a little
bit lighter then solid oak board. Now although there is many different types of wood that
you could use I find oak to be the easiest to work with.
