Huh.  Fark renamed your organization to Student Helps Assist In Teaching.

That acronym is contrived and you should feel terrible about it.

Can't be better than the 8x2 piece of 7/8" plywood I have resting on top of a pair of $30 filing cabinets.

It's so touching to see these people creating artisanal hand crafted desks, so that the students don't have to spend $11 at Home Depot for a cheap folding table. I guess they're the furniture equivalent of the Christians who are bringing canned beans to the homeless shelter every Saturday, instead of useable sh*t like boots and backpacks.

A lot of woodworkers started making various styles of desks for kids when the pandemic started, so his isn't the only one.  Most of those aren't asking for donations and giving away lots of desks, though, they are selling them.

This is his "how to build it" video.

Not enough structural integrity with milk crates, esp. the cheap chinamart ones.

Then again, I could move most of the cases of ammo from on top of the desk to underneath the desk.... then milk crates may work.

Good thing shiatheads will carve all over them inside of a semester rendering every paper you write into a gravestone rubbing of dicks and that infinity S

I recently saw a post on r/woodworking where a guy made 100 or so of those.  May even be the same guy.
