I'll show you a before/after photo at the end of this endeavor. Promise. But, in the meantime, relax and enjoy my remodeling efforts. Please keep in mind that I'm a photographer, not a carpenter. Many "learning experiences" to follow. Hey, no laughing.
(In case it's not immediately apparent, the goal is two separate desks, which will replace a broken desk and folding table, currently claiming to be my office space.)

An elderly gentleman actually stopped to laugh at us as we loaded the wood into our sedan. He walked away laughing, saying, "Well, whatever works I guess." How Rude! (How Accurate!!) :)
After the measuring and sawing, Steven left me to enjoy some quality time with my sander. I put on some headphones and rocked out. ...Turns out, our garage is not sound-proof. My sincere apologies to anyone who heard my a cappella efforts. Steven was highly amused and didn't mention the lack of sound-proof-ness until I had completed the project.
