Step 1: Building the First Frame
To begin, let's focus on the first frame. For this, you will need the following materials:
Start by assembling a rigid frame using the 15-inch and 25-inch profiles. Join them together to form a rectangular shape. Once the frame is assembled, securely attach a 45-inch profile (referred to as "profile 1" in the diagram) to the frame. This profile will serve as a support for the surface of your desk.
By following these steps, you will have constructed the first frame of your desk, providing a sturdy foundation for the rest of the project.
Step 2: Desk Covers
In this step, we will focus on the covers of our desk. Prepare the following materials:
To create a wide and comfortable surface to work on, we will fix these profiles together. Once they are joined, secure them to the rigid frame and its horizontal support that we built in the previous step. Attach the 52.5-inch profiles to the upper part of the frame and the 28-inch profiles to the left side.
By completing this step, you will have successfully attached the covers to your desk, creating a spacious and practical workspace. The fixed profiles provide stability and durability to support your work activities.
Step 3: Side Decoration
Congratulations! You're just one step away from completing your desk project. Now, let's focus on assembling the side decoration. For this, you will need:
To begin, join a 9-inch profile with one of the 5.75-inch profiles at their ends. These joined profiles will be attached to the inside of the main frame. Position one at the top-right corner and the other at the bottom-left corner.
By completing this step, you will have successfully assembled the side decoration of your desk. This decorative element adds a touch of elegance and finishes off the overall design.
Congratulations! Your new desk is now ready for use. Enjoy your newly created workspace and make the most of it!
