    =( They don’t sell the Vika Artur adjustable tressles online or in my local store anymore.

    Umm prety cool, but I would think attaching drawer to a still table would be easier and save space?

    Hi –

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, but just a quick note, I don’t think the audio file works. It’s taken 6 hours now to “convert” to wma (says the website) but the link is MP3. Something doesn’t make sense.

    Since I’m viewing from europe (the land without ACE Hardware stores) I’d really like to see close-ups of all the hardware and how it went together. Considering he probably doesn’t want to take the desk apart to accommodate lil’ old me, maybe a suggestion for the next desk project?

    Thanks, James, for making the PDF. Good photos and clear instructions. Looking forward to having the opportunity to do this sort of thing myself!
