Danny Lipford and Allen Lyle demonstrate how to turn an old door into a desk. First, remove the door hinges. Then, fill the biggest part of the voided hardware holes with wood and seal them with bonding adhesive. Don't leave too much excess bonding adhesive on the door or else you'll have to sand it off once it's dried. You may need at least two coats of bonding adhesive to get the surface level. Cut wood for the sides of the desk and then run them over a router. Sand down the door and the new wood. Scrape and sand off the paint. Use a two by six to create the desk legs. Install the desk top and shelves onto the door with wood glue, nails and screws. Attach the legs to the desk to complete the door project. Doors can also be used for headboards and room dividers.
