I saw this desk while shopping on Fillmore at Designs Within Reach. I decided that I had to have it. It would be perfect for my little writing desk nook I was planning on having in my new apartment. Then I saw the price tag and realized this desk would never be mine. I immediately emailed the link to my dad and asked if he could make me one. He was hellbent on explaining that the legs would be difficult. I tried to explain to him that it really wasn't the legs I was interested in. I think that was his way of telling me he really didn't want to embark on such a project. It ended with him telling me "it would be cheaper if you just bought it." I had to remind him that it costs $1800! Then he just tried to change the subject. He really doesn't feel like doing any of my projects anymore.
