HOW TO – Make a pack flat plywood desk

Drocko writes –

Recently I was in the market for a new desk.

I wanted to make a desk that was able to be disassembled and packed flat, made from few and easily obtainable supplies with simple tools.

The desk can be created from the following supplies:
1 4’x8’x3/4″ A-1 plywood sheet
2 4′ 3/8″ steel rod
2 3/8″ nuts
2 3/8″ wingnuts
8 washers
8 screws
Some woodglue

You will need the following tools:
Tape measure
Circular saw (for other saw for making large cuts in the plywood)
Coping saw (for cutting the notches)
Several clamps

I also recommend a squaring device such as a speed square.
