From Sarah Adamo
I was looking over your site last month and came across the "kids desk" plans.
I thought it was an excellent design and since my son's birthdays were coming up I called up my dad to see if he would be interested in building them, since he's the carpenter in the family.
He was delighted and jumped right in. He used mahogany paint grade plywood, added some edge banding, painted the tops and seats my son's favorite colors and then finished it with a clear coat of spray shellac
First they tried a water based clear coat over the water based paint, but the paint wrinkled so they had to sand it all off and start over. The paint did wrinkle a little bit with the shellac, so they think maybe next time (when my daughter is old enough for her own desk) they will try verathane.
Then he and my mom put some decals on to finish them off. My sons were delighted with their gifts.
Please enjoy and feel free to use all of the included pictures.
